Predation and Defence Amongst Reptiles comprises a non-technical summary of two of the most important aspects of the natural history of reptiles (including dinosaurs, ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, pterodactyls, and other extinct groups). Adaptive responses to the capture of prey and escape from predators are analysed, and topics covered include predatory techniques, flight, concealment and disguise, armour and weapons, warning coloration, mimicry, bluff, death-feigning and tail autotomy, social behaviour and parental care. Predation and Defence Amongst Reptiles concludes with a discussion of the interactions between predators and their prey, a bibliography and index. It is intended primarily for herpetologists and field naturalists, but w ill also be of value to university students and research workers.
