Overview

This Practical Handbook Of Reptile Field Ecology And Conservation Brings Together A Distinguished, International Group Of Reptile Researchers To Provide A State-of-the-art Review Of The Many New And Exciting Techniques Used To Study Reptiles. The Authors Describe Ecological Sampling Techniques And How They Are Implemented To Monitor The Conservation Status And Population Trends Of Snakes, Lizards, Tuatara, Turtles, And Crocodilians Throughout The World. Emphasis Is Placed On The Extent Of Statistical Inference And The Biases Associated With Different Techniques And Analyses. Part 1. Introduction. 1. Reptile Diversity And Life History / Laurie J.
