      This chapter focuses on the fauna of Lesser Antilles. The Lesser Antilles extend from South America northward in a long arc of more than a dozen major islands and hundreds of small islets. The number of amphibians and reptiles in the Lesser Antilles is related to the island size, diversity of habitat, and distance from the mainland or another.   The Lesser Antilles are a long string of islands that form the eastern boundary of the Caribbean Sea. As far as beach travel goes, the Lesser Antilles should not be overlooked! Many of these small islands are volcanic and tourists can split their time between beach activities and fascinating hiking and sightseeing in the interior.

        The Windward Islands, the Leeward Islands, and the Leeward Antilles are part of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. These island groups include many of the most popular tourist destinations in the West Indies. This collection of islands is diverse in terrain and culture. Most are very small and the tiniest islands remain : Matt Rosenberg. Explore our list of Lesser Antilles - History Books at Barnes & Noble®. Receive FREE shipping with your Barnes & Noble Membership.

The islands form the eastern boundary of the Caribbean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. Together, the Lesser Antilles and the Greater Antilles compose the Antilles. When combined with the Region: Caribbean. The Lesser Antilles and the South Sandwich archipelagoes (Scotia arc) are the only two active island arcs of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Lesser Antilles arc (Fig. 1) is on the eastern margin of the Caribbean plate, at the site where the Caribbean plate is.

The Greater Antilles Mesozoic-early Tertiary orthogeosyncline originally was either a basin between the Bahamas platform on the north and a land-mass on the south (on the site of the present Caribbean), or an island-arc system between the Bahamas-Turks and Caicos-Atlantic Ocean basin on the north, and an oceanic basin (modern Caribbean Sea) on the south.
