Natural History of Neotropical Treeboas (genus Corallus)
By Henderson, Robert W.
Pp. 338; 270 color photos depicting tree boa color variation, habitats, predation, and mating, numerous maps, and graphs. Color pictorial laminated black boards (hardcover), lettered on the spine and front cover in white, lg 8vo. Nine species comprise the arboreal boid genus Corallus. Combined, they range from Guatemala in northern Central America to southeastern Brazil in South America, and two species occur on islands in the West Indies. Based on extensive fieldwork by the author extending over 25 years, observations from colleagues, and the literature, Natural History of Neotropical Treeboas (Genus Corallus) summarizes, often in great detail, our current knowledge of tree boa habitats, activity, diet, foraging strategies, defensive behaviors, predators, reproduction, population characteristics. In addition, the volume covers the shared history of humans and tree boas and the impact humans have had on tree boa natural history (from the rear cover blurb).
