About this book

Language: English

Since the publication of Malcolm Smith's The Fauna of British India-Reptilia and Amphibia, in 3 Volumes (1931-1943), the research and knowledge of these taxa has increased considerably. Following on from the work on Testudines, Crocodilians and Lizards in two previous Handbooks, the present book is the third in the series and deals with the detailed general introduction on snakes, covering briefly all the possible details and description of the characters and the systematic accounts of 239 species in 68 genera belonging to 10 families.

As well as providing an up-to-date and complete taxonomic account of all the species and subspecies known from India, sufficient information on biology, ecology, distribution, zoogeography, habits and habitats, status, conservation and captive breeding of numerous species has also been given in this book.
