Reviews

This multiauthored book spans a range of topics relevant to those individuals interested in keeping, breeding, and understanding health problems of the green iguana (Iguana iguana). It offers a unique synthesis of the work and experiences of biologists, nutritionists, and veterinarians who have worked with green iguanas, both in the field and in captivity, and it presents the most current, and in some cases previously unreported, information on iguana biology and medicine. Topics include biology and reproduction in the wild, nutrition in the wild and in captivity, ontogeny of captive iguanas, husbandry, clinical evaluation, diseases, drug dosages and chemotherapeutics, anesthesia and surgery, and diagnostic imaging.

"The editor has assembled a group of authors from Zoos, Wildlife Agencies, Private Vet Practices, and Universities writing detailed review chapters not only discussing biology (in greater detail than ever before) but covering husbandry and medicine as well…My overall impressions of the book are excellent." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, June 2003

"… a quality book with by far the best, most up to date, most accurate and scientific information on green iguanas available…It is an exceptional value for the price. It is simply the best book on green iguanas available today." -- Stephen L. Barten, DVM, Bulletin of the Chicago Herpetological Society, Volume 38, Number 7, July 2003

"Technical terminology is abundant, but the narrative is written for easy comprehension by laypersons as well as professional researchers. An authoritative and current work, useful for the library of anyone utilizing green iguanas for research or pets. Highly recommended for municipal and academic libraries." -- E.D. Keiser, University of Mississippi, CHOICE, November 2003

"This book effectively combines captive management recommendations with scientific justification based on field observation as well as standard analytical methods…I would recommend this book to anyone interested in iguana biology as well as to those keeping or caring for iguanas in captivity." -- James L. Jarchow, Sonoran Herpetologist, August 2003, Volume 16, Number 8

"… an excellent single resource for better understanding all aspects of green iguana care…Dr. Jacobson and his colleagues have created an excellent reference text that I would highly recommend." -- Byron de la Navarre, DVM, Exotic DVM, September 2003

"This is the first textbook to provide accurate, in-depth, and very usable information on a single species. No one is more qualified to serve as editor than Elliott Jacobson is, and the list of contributing authors is impressive." -- Sandra C. Wilson, DVM, MS, Veterinarian, Sedgwick County Zoo, Wichita, Kansas, Animal Keepers' Forum, December 2003

"Without a doubt, this is a great work, suitable for all "audiences" (students, veterinarians, biologists, terrarium keepers, and anyone interested in iguanas)…We are convinced that it will be a long time before any other publication comes along and outdoes this one, so it well deserves a prominent place on the library shelf of every veterinarian, and even every iguana enthusiast." -- Javier Valverde, Reptilia, No. 39, February 2005
