India has always had the somewhat unenviable reputation of harbouring some of the worldâ€™s most venomous snakes. The present book aims to present an uptodate and comprehensive account of ecological and clinical study of Indian species of poisonous snakes. The contributions of the eminent researchers and experts have been compiled in the book to facilitate and give fillip to all future researchers on the subject. The salient features of the present book are: It is the first seminal contribution on the ecology and clinical study of poisonous snakes of India, The contributions of various experts have been given in a simple and easily understandable language, The book contains a directory of various resource persons/organizations contributing to the study of poisonous snakes in general and Asiatic species in particular in India and abroad, A comprehensive bibliography of poisonous snakes of India has been given in the book.
