Although snakes are among the most fascinating of animals, information on their ecology and behaviour has always been relatively inaccessible. Now, this volume provides a broad and comprehensive overview of snake ecology and evolutionary biology, including contributions by leading researchers who provide an in-depth literature review and report on exciting areas of study such as population genetics, neurobiology, functional morphology and ecology, behaviour and evolution. With the help of this compendium, herpetologists, zoologists, naturalists, and environmentalists can now have at their fingertips the latest research findings on snakes, such as thermoregulation, foraging ecology, habitat selection, adaptations to arboreality, and sexual dimorphism. This reference also features a wealth of illustrations and extensive bibliographies that will aid researchers in current and future research.
