Beihefte zum Tubinger Atlas des Vorderen Orients, Reihe A (Naturwissenschaften) nr. 12 + Tübinger Atlas of the Near East (TAVO) of the University of Tübingen, published by the special research area 19 (1983). This monograph provides an introduction and key to the venomous snakes of the Near and Middle East. There is specific coverage of the Colubridae - Atractaspidae (2 species), Elapidae - Elpinae (5 species), Elapidae - Hydrophiinae (7 species), Viperidae - Crotalinae (2 species), Viperidae - Viperinae (13 species). There is also a discussion with zoogeographical conclusions and a taxonomic summary. Additionally 4 appendices complete the work. The very large color folding map (28 x 19 1/2 inches) offered here was compiled by Ulrich Joger but published separately from the monograph in 1983 in the series: Tubinger Atlas des Vorderen Orients (TAVO) der Universitat Tubingen, Herausgegeben vom Sonderforschungsbereich 19. This map contains four separate color maps of the Middle East, each listing the precise ranges of the 27+ species of snakes covered in the monograph. As there is no color range map in the monograph itself, this large color map acts as a supplement to the monograph as the author intended. Small name stamp of herpetologist Kraig Adler at the top corner of the front wrapper. Bookseller Inventory #
