About this book

Based on a Ph.D. thesis, this title covers a major group of reptile lizards with systematic analysis based on the observation and anatomy of the neck region.

This book is divided into 3 parts:

i. General history and phylogeny of Lepidosauria, and the evolution and diversity of the neck in Lepidosauria

ii. Descriptions and terminology of the craniocervical region: bone (skull, presacral vertebral column and pectoral girdle) and muscles (superficial, intermediate and deep).

iii. Materials and methods (dissection and observation) with a list of dissected and skeletal specimens and the phylogenetic tree (constructed by other authors) used for the craniocervical character distribution.
