About this product
- DescriptionSnakes of the Americas is a comprehensive checklist of all kwn snakes found in the New World, as well as a lexicon that lists all the common names, in several languages, of these snakes. The checklist gives information on snakes in all of the Americas through the subspecies level, as well as citations and distribution information. The lexicon, on an easy-to-use, searchable compact disk, includes common names in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Guarani, and other languages of the Americas, along with references. Included are North American, South American, Central American, and Caribbean species. In addition to herpetologists and libraries, other disciplines also will find this work to be a valuable resource. An extensive bibliography is included.
- Author BiographyBob L. Tipton, a research associate at the Texas Cooperative Wildlife Collection at Texas A&M and a native of Houston, Texas, grew up collecting snakes around Houston and east Texas. After graduating college he entered the business world where he began traveling and collecting snakes extensively throughout the world. He has studied and collected snakes in 59 countries where his work in petroleum and capital flight issues took him. His relationship with the TCWC at Texas A&M University began about ten years ago when he started using their facilities and resources to identify snakes he was finding in Latin America. That initial research eventually resulted in this book and CD-ROM.
