Biology of the Boas and PythonsArtist/Author: Henderson, Robert W. and Robert Powell (Editors)
This book is the product of a symposium “Biology of Boas, Pythons, and Related Taxa” held at the 2005 joint meetings in Tampa, Florida, and sponsored by the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles. This was the first attempt to bring together researchers actively working on some aspect of boa/python biology.
The symposium was a resounding success, and this book represents a current assessment of our understanding of boid biology. Between the diversity of the peer-reviewed contributions and the literature reviews, this volume will become an essential reference for most future boa and python research.
