This book is the first significant contribution to thoroughly examine the potential hazards associated with snakes of the former family, Colubridae. This family contained >65% of living snake species (approximately 3,000 taxa) and has recently been split into multiple families. Many of these snakes produce oral secretions that contain toxins and other biologically-active substances. A large variety of these snakes figure in the pet industry, yet little documented information or formal study of their potential medical importance has been published. Therefore, although the possible medical importance of many of these species has been subjected to speculation since the mid-nineteenth century, there is a limited amount of useful descriptive information regarding the real hazard (or lack thereof) of snakes belonging to this diverse, artificial family. There is a need for "one-stop shopping" offering information regarding their possible toxicity and clinical relevance as well as recommendations for medical management of their bites. This book is the first synthesis of this information and includes evidence-based risk assessment, hazard rankings and specific recommendations regarding important species, many common in captivity. Fills a gap in the toxinological, medical and herpetological literature by providing a comprehensive review of this entire assemblage of snakes, with particular attention given to their capacity, real or rumored, to cause harm to humans A patient-centered, evidence-based approach is applied to analyzing documented case reports of bites inflicted by approximately 100 species. Clinical management of medically significant bites from non-front-fanged colubroids is methodically reviewed, and specific recommendations are provided

"Venomous" Bites from "Non-Venomous" Snakes, Second Edition is the first significant contribution to thoroughly examine the potential hazards associated with non-front-fanged snakes, former family, Colubridae. This family contained >65% of living snake species (approximately 3,000 taxa) and has recently been split into multiple families and subfamilies. Many of these snakes produce oral secretions that contain toxins and other biologically-active substances. A large variety of non-front-fanged snakes figure in the pet industry, yet little documented information or formal study of their potential medical importance has been published. Therefore, although the possible medical importance of many of these species has been subjected to speculation since the mid-nineteenth century, there is a limited amount of useful descriptive information regarding the real hazard (or lack thereof) of snakes belonging to this diverse, artificial family. The first edition of this book provided one-stop shopping by offering information regarding their possible toxicity and clinical relevance as well as recommendations for medical management of their bites. The second edition will expand and update the content with detailed information about the effects and medical management of bites by at least 12 non-front-fanged species. The ever-changing taxonomy of advanced snakes is updated, and the bases for some of the changes is discussed. Likewise, terminology is also updated in order to reflect the ongoing debates regarding the definition of 'venom' and the balanced reinforcement of non-medical criteria used to define the biological basis of the term venomous. Fills a gap in toxinological, medical, and herpetological literature by providing a comprehensive review of this entire assemblage of non-venomous snakes, with particular attention given to their capacity to cause harm to humans Offers a patient-centered, evidence-based approach which is applied to analyzing documented case reports of bites inflicted by approximately 100 species Provides expanded and updated detailed information on the clinical management of medically significant bites from non-front-fanged snakes which is also methodically reviewed and specific recommendations are provided Includes updates to the taxonomy of advanced snakes and also to terminology with particular regard to the definition of "venom" and the non-medical criteria used to define the biological basis of "venomous"

Rock mass classification methods are commonly used at the preliminary design stages of a construction project when there is very little information. It forms the bases for design and estimation of the required amount and type of rock support and groundwater control measures. Encompassing nearly all aspects of rock mass classifications in detail, Civil Engineering Rock Mass Classification: Tunnelling, Foundations and Landsides provides construction engineers and managers with extensive practical knowledge which is time-tested in the projects in Himalaya and other parts of the world in complex
