About this book
Building on the success of its predecessor, the second edition of "Ecotoxicology of Amphibians and Reptiles" presents newly available findings on these important groups of animals. This edition covers nearly twice as many topics as the first, including recent developments in the ecotoxicology of amphibians and reptiles, the current status of these animals, and intrinsic factors that affect their susceptibility to contaminants. This book also provides the latest information on specific groups of contaminants and their effects and body burdens in herpetafauna. After a review of how contaminants interact with other ecological factors, the text explores concerns for the future.
