by Susan C. M. Gardner, Eva Oberdorster,

CRC, 2005. 328 pages

Toxicology of Reptiles cohesively summarizes much of the cutting-edge research taking place in fields such as reptilian endocrinology, neurophysiology, immunology, and ecology. It also addresses conservation needs along with the complications often associated with population studies. The text is easy to synthesize and apply in the evaluation and understanding of potential risks to reptiles from environmental contaminants. This book provides a comprehensive description of the current state of knowledge of reptilian toxicology from the perspective of target organ systems. It covers major contaminant classes within each chapter, focusing on those of greatest concern. The authors highlight the most pressing information gaps, and propose priority directions for further advancement in the fields of reptilian biology, wildlife and environmental toxicology, conservation, and ecological risk assessment.

By Stephen P. Mackessy

CRC, 2009. 528 p.

Bringing together contributions from many of the world's leading experts in toxinology, the Handbook of Venoms and Toxins of Reptiles covers a broad range of topics relevant to a wide range of professionals including clinicians, biomedical researchers, herpetologists, and zoologists, as well as pharmacologists and evolutionary scientists. It discusses phylogeny and gland structure, venom enzymes and toxins, non-protein venom components, and envenomation and its treatment, including ideal treatments contrasted with that which is actually available in specific areas of the world. The text also addresses venom enzymes and assay procedures used to detect venoms along with venom toxins.
