Extensive studies on diversity and ecology of Sri Lankan herpetofauna have so far been conducted mostly in and around protected areas. Studies on fauna of economically important crop plantations such as tea, rubber, coconut, and some other commercial crops are limited and few studies have been conducted in tea plantations in up country, Sri Lanka. This study was undertaken to estimate herpetofaunal diversity and identify important habitats for herpetofauna in a tea plantation ecosystem in Sri Lanka.
