About this book

Amphibians are the oldest tetrapod group and show an astonishing diversity in lifestyles, many of them being unique. However, globally, they are on a decline. Hence, their study is fundamental to understanding the evolution of diversity and conserving them. This book, authored by experts from around the world, summarizes the current knowledge on the evolutionary ecology of amphibians. The book treats biological concepts related to the evolution, ecology, physiology, immunology, behaviour, and morphology of amphibians in their different states. This book constitutes an actualized work indispensable for evolutionary ecologists and herpetologists.

Biography

Dr Gregorio Moreno-Rueda (University of Granada, Spain) is an evolutionary ecologist with more than one hundred publications dealing with vertebrate ecology. He mainly studies the evolution of trade-offs determining life history traits, in particular how the immune system trades off with other physiological traits.

Dr Mar Comas (Dartmouth College, USA) is a herpetologist specialising in amphibian evolutionary ecology. Mar Comas works mainly on how amphibians deal with parasites and the trade-offs of these antiparasitic strategies with other physiological traits.
