In the search for snakebite antidotes, the ecology and evolution of venomous snakes is of critical importance. Until this publication, no text had addressed both the medical aspects of snakebite treatment as well as the highly relevant ecological and evolutionary aspects.
This book presents the proceedings of a 1995 symposium that was convened with the explicit goal of integrating research on the ecology and evolution of venomous snakes with work done on the medical and toxicological implications of snakebite. --Choice
