About this book

Despite their diversity, amphibians and reptiles share many physiological traits of pivotal importance to their ability to cope with the physical environment, such as their dependence on external heat sources. Species distributed along a latitudinal or altitudinal gradient can exhibit considerable variation in their physiological capabilities as a function of changes in environmental parameters. Amphibian and Reptile Adaptations to the Environment provides a comprehensive and integrative view of the interplay between physiology and behavior in amphibians and reptiles, leading to a better understanding of the subject.
