9780127826202: Herpetology: Introductory Biology of Amphibians and Reptiles

Herpetology has always been one of the most exciting disciplines of zoology. During the past few years the field has continued to grow, yet it has been plagued by scarcity of comprehensive, up-to-date textbooks containing the most important developments. This timely book fills that void. Through skillful synthesis, the author summarizes the diversity in the biology of living amphibians and reptiles and describes the breadth of current herpetological research. Topics covered include the evolution, classification, development, reproduction, population, and environmental issues surrounding the study of amphibians and reptiles. Designed as an advanced undergraduate textbook, Herpetology is a valuable resource for students, practitioners, and interested amateurs alike.

Review:

"This second edition of the popular textbook provides a broad overview of amphibian and reptilian biology, taxonomy, evolution, behavior, and conservation. It is well-suited for an undergraduate-level herpetology course in biology, evolution, or taxonomy. It is invaluable also as a reference for professional herpetologists...well illustrated throughout with photographs (some in color), line drawings, and distribution maps. Provides up-to-date information on all of the major groups, and includes an extensive taxonomic index, as well as a glossary." -SOUTHEASTERN NATURALIST "Taken as a whole, Zug et al. (2001) is an impressive volume, at once visually pleasing for its attractive layout and high production values, and at the same time, intellectually satisfying in its scope and detail. It is well-suited as a textbook for senior undergraduates and graduate students, and it will be a standard herpetological reference for years to come." -Julican C. Lee, University of Miami for HERPETOLOGICAL REVIEW Praise for 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 and 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 "Zug's text contains new chapeters with new text references and new color illustrations that will keep this book on the top...you couldn't do better for serious herpetological biology education than to read this book." -Dave Hyatt for THE TUSCON HERPETOLOGICAL SOCIETY
