It brings together data and information previously scattered across publications to synthesize knowledge on the history, ecology, physiology and anatomy of crocodilians. The book provides a comprehensive look at the physiology, current taxonomy, ecology and sexual maturity factors of these reptiles. It then delves into the anatomy and cycles of both male and female reproduction systems, including nesting and incubation, temperature-dependent sex determination, and sex ratios across various species populations. Finally, the book focuses on conservation efforts to protect the reproductive cycle, taking factors such as pollution, climate change, and human disruption into consideration. It is an ideal resource for wildlife biologists and herpetologists seeking up-to-date and thorough research data on conservation efforts. It will also be helpful for exotic animal veterinarians, zookeepers, and alligator or crocodile farmers. Focuses on crocodilian reproduction and how it is impacted by seasons, social interactions, pollution, and more Provides a thorough overview by a globally-recognized expert on crocodilian reproduction and endocrinology Explores conservation efforts and offers insights for protecting crocodilian reproduction cycles against current factors, including pollution, environmental effects and human interference
