About this book

Language: Spanish with bilingual identification key and summary in English and Spanish

This new monographic treatise is a wide synthesis and critical evaluation of the present status of the taxonomic and biological information concerning the western, central and southern reptiles of Argentina. It begins with a general, morpho-physiological and biogeographical introduction, followed by practical Spanish and English keys to the several reptilian genera and species from the southermost South American regions, east of the Andes. Their detailed taxonomic discussion and the joined bibliography and iconographic documentation provide a valuable scientific tool to any student of the systematics, biology and ecology of the tortoises, lizards and snakes from the specialized, subdesertic and montane environments of the austral biota of the neotropical continent.
