This volume is an important contribution to the understanding of the snake fauna in a region where bites from venomous snakes are common. Venomous snakes are a substantial and ecologically important part of the biodiversity of the Middle East and constitute some of the more well-known species in that part of the world. Wide ranging species like the Blunt-nosed Viper (Macrovipera lebetina) and the Asian Saw-scaled Viper (Echis carinatus), which contributes to a large number of lethal bites are well known (from the preface).
