9780138508760: Herpetology

Containing over 300 illustrations, this engaging study integrates information about the ecology, behavior, morphology, and physiology of amphibians and reptiles, presenting topics in a phylogenetic and organismal context. An insightful collaboration between authors whose work has been instrumental in the development of such diverse specialties as molecular evolution, environmental physiology, and behavioral ecology, it shows amphibians and reptiles as vital organisms that represent a distinct and successful approach to studying terrestrial vertebrate life.

Begins with an overview of amphibians and reptiles as organisms, explaining their roles in modern ecosystems, and progressively builds an appreciation of these animals as diverse and successful organisms, emphasizing the common challenges the face and the diversity of responses they have evolved. Considers the phylogenetic relationships of amphibians, examines gametogenesis and reproductive cycles, discusses their communication methods, and talks about the impact we have had on them through environmental pollution, commercial exploitation, and more.
