Intensive research on and management of poisonous snakes center on Japan, home of the Habu, and Guam, where Brown Treesnakes have killed off many native species. This book draws on that research to present comprehensive guidelines for snake management, offering a wealth of information on their biology and behavior previously unavailable in English. Studies of the Habu and the Brown Treesnake have set standards for management and defined current knowledge regarding the epidemiology of envenomation and threats to biodiversity caused by snake predators. This book establishes the state of the art for snake management worldwide and a much-needed foundation for future research.

Synopsis:

Intensive research on and management of poisonous snakes has centred on Japan, home of the habu, and Guam, where brown treesnakes have killed off many native species. This text draws on that research to present comprehensive guidelines for snake management, with information on biology and behaviour. The authors address a wide range of problems associated with snakes, from bites to wildlife endangerment. They cover basic biology and ecology; management techniques such as detection, capture and habitat modification; use of predators, parasites and toxicants; and methods of isolating snakes with electrical, chemical or habitat barriers. All management recommendations are based on current ecological, behavioural and sensory information. The importance of natural history in differentiating management programmes for snakes is emphasized throughout.
