This chapter presents a comparative study of the structure and function of chemical senses of nonavian aquatic reptiles such as turtles, crocodylians (crocodiles and alligators), squamates (lizards and snakes), fossil aquatic reptiles (mosasaurs, phytosaurs, and plesiosaurs), and other aquatic mesozoic reptiles. It also examines the functional and evolutionary patterns of chemosensory adaptations to aquatic environments.

Keywords:   chemical senses, nonavian aquatic reptiles, turtles, crocodylians, squamates, mosasaurs, phytosaurs, plesiosaurs, chemosensory adaptations
