About the Journal
Hamadryad was established in 1976 and is a free and open-access journal aimed at publishing novel research and observations on the herpetofauna of the Indian subcontinent. It includes full-length articles and short notes on the natural history, ecology, taxonomy, captive husbandry, and conservation of reptiles and amphibians of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
Hamadryad publishes one large volume per year in English. The journal was paused from publication from 2018-2021, but is now revived from its hiatus again with bi-annual online publication.
