About this book

Language: French with summaries in English and Portuguese

Serpents et Amphisbènes de Guyane Française is intended for anyone keen to learn more about the Guyanese herpetofauna. During the last decade, the phylogenetic classification of reptiles has seen many changes due to the use of DNA analysis as a new tool for systematics. New genera and species of ophidians are presented and some were put in synonymy. Eight families, 54 genera and 98 species are described, including 6 new species for Guyana and a hybrid form of the genus Epicrates in the wild. To this are added 3 species of amphisbaenians. Also included is a chapter with the latest knowledge on envenomation, treatment and epidemiology. A summary in English and Portuguese are available for each species.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage de vulgarisation scientifique se destine à toute personne soucieuse de découvrir ou de mieux connaître l’herpétofaune guyanaise. Cette dernière décennie, la classification phylogénétique des reptiles a connu de nombreux changements dictés par l’utilisation de l’analyse adn comme nouvel outil de la systématique. Des genres et des espèces nouveaux d’ophidiens sont présentés ; certains ont été mis en synonymie. Huit familles, 54 genres et 98 espèces sont décrits, parmi lesquelles 6 nouvelles espèces pour la Guyane et une forme d’hybride sauvage du genre Epicrates. A cela s’ajoute 3 espèces d’amphisbènes. Un chapitre fait le point des dernières connaissances sur les envenimations, leur traitement et leur épidémiologie. Un résumé en anglais et en portugais sont proposés pour chaque espèce.
