Summary: Amphibians and reptiles occupy a crucial position in the evolution of vertebrates and therefore are representative of many of the transitions that eventually resulted in the evolution of mammals and birds. The Second Edition of Herpetology synthesizes what is known about the biology and systematics of amphibians and reptiles, combining thoroughly revised and expanded text discussions with informative, largely new gra...phics and numerous color illustrations. Herpetology is and ideal text for an undergraduate-level introductory course, but will also be of interest to faculty, researchers, and graduate students as a source of information about these interesting animals. Because of its broad coverage, Herpetology is relevant to courses in vertebrate biology, ecology, behavior, systematics, and evolution. Key features * Evolution and morphology of amphibians and reptiles * Reproduction and life histories * Physiological ecology emphasizing water balance, temperature, and energy * Behavior, including spacing, social behavior, foraging, and predator escape * Integration of population and community ecology with conservation biology * Detailed taxonomic accounts of all higher taxa, including high-quality distribution maps and color photographs From reviews of the First Edition: "This will be a valued, and oft-consulted, addition to any naturalist's or conservationist's library for its up-to-date comprehensive overview of these ecologically important groups and their role in the contemporary environment; it is a must for anyone just starting into the field of herpetology...". --CANADIAN FIELD NATURALIST [read more]
