**Traue niemandem, der dich küssen will** Melek ist alles andere als ungewöhnlich. Sie lebt in einer Kleinstadt, schreibt mittelmäßige Noten und hat nur einen einzigen Freund. Oder auch gar keinen, wenn man bedenkt, dass er lieber mehr als nur eine Freundschaft mit ihr hätte. Doch dann wird sie von den »Talenten« entdeckt, einer Gruppe Jugendlicher mit übernatürlichen Fähigkeiten, die ihr offenbaren, dass sie eine versteckte Begabung in sich trägt. Von einem Tag auf den anderen wird Melek in ein gefährliches Doppelleben verstrickt und muss einem strengen Regelwerk folgen, dessen oberstes Gesetz lautet: Küsse niemanden, wenn dir dein Leben lieb ist. Dass der gutaussehende Anführer der Talente ausgerechnet den charismatischsten Mann darstellt, dem Melek je begegnet ist, macht diese Regel dabei nicht gerade einfacher… //Alle Bände der urbanen Fantasy-Bestseller-Reihe: -- Das Geheimnis der Talente (Die Talente-Reihe 1) -- Das Bündnis der Talente (Die Talente-Reihe 2) -- Der Krieg der Talente (Die Talente-Reihe 3) -- Das Schicksal der Talente - Prequel//

Toxicology of Reptiles cohesively summarizes much of the cutting-edge research taking place in fields such as reptilian endocrinology, neurophysiology, immunology, and ecology. It also addresses conservation needs along with the complications often associated with population studies. The text is easy to synthesize and apply in the evaluation and understanding of potential risks to reptiles from environmental contaminants. This book provides a comprehensive description of the current state of knowledge of reptilian toxicology from the perspective of target organ systems. It covers major contaminant classes within each chapter, focusing on those of greatest concern. The authors highlight the most pressing information gaps, and propose priority directions for further advancement in the fields of reptilian biology, wildlife and environmental toxicology, conservation, and ecological risk assessment.
