This publication contains an Introduction, Synopsis of Generic Names and a Bibliography. The list includes all known generic and subgeneric names for both living and extinct snakes that were current at the time of writing. The names are presented in alphabetical order, with valid names in upper case letters, whilst invalid names (or junior synonyms) are in lower case. All original descriptions have been checked, unless noted otherwise in the bibliography.
This is an important reference book for anybody working with snake taxonomy.
