In this pages you can download selected chapters of my dissertation or the whole thing as PDF documents. You may cite is as: Rivas, J. A. 2000. Life history of the green anaconda (Eunectes murinus) with emphasis on its reproductive biology. Unpublished Ph. D. dissertation at the University of Tennessee. 287p.  What you will find here is word by word, figure by figure and table by table, the same than my dissertation but I have changed things like font, spacing and positioning of figures and tables on the interest of making it into smaller files that would go smoothly through the web. Thus, this is NOT a facsimile of the original dissertation.

You may  download the whole document  by clicking here but this might be a bit of a big file.  You may download it by chapters if you preffered
