About the book

The ecology of skinks has been studied in recent years (about two decades). Foraging mode has been shown to be a persuasive evolutionary force molding the diet, ecology, behavior, anatomy, biomechanics, life history, and physiology of skinks and lizards.

This volume will review the state of our knowledge on the effects of foraging mode on these and other organismal systems to show how skinks and lizards have evolved with foraging mode over a wide taxonomic survey of skink and lizard groups. This review will reveal the continuous nature of foraging strategies in skinks and lizards (especially skinks and lizards living in tropical regions), providing the general reader with an up-to-date review of the field, and will equip researchers with new insights and future directions for the sit-and-wait vs. wide foraging paradigm.

This volume will serve as a reference book for Ph.D. students, herpetologists, evolutionary biologists, animal behaviorists, and conservational ecologists.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing or reviewing. I assist authors in preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
