This volume contains original contributions from an international group of authors with the highest reputations in their respective areas of phylogenetic and reproductive studies on salamanders and newts. A full panoply of topics is covered, from morphology of gametes and reproductive systems to considerations of behavior and life history, all placed in a phylogenetic context. The chapters not only synthesize past literature but also present new observations and indicate directions for future research. This is an essential text for anyone interested in the biology of urodele amphibians.
