About this book

West Indian representatives of the genera Boa, Corallus, Epicrates, and Tropidophis are treated in this volume, as are subspecies if known. Diagnostic characteristics are presented for each, as well as distribution maps. Sections on phylogeny and zoogeography review current research and opinions on these controversial topics. Descriptions of physical features, habitat and climate are presented for each island or island group. There are also observations on habitat, diet, foraging, defence and reproductive biology.
