Comprehensive reference for both amateurs and professionals
 “A timely and elegant volume that succeeds not only as a field guide but as a natural history narrative and a visual reminder of the beauty and diversity of Florida’s amphibians.”—Gregory C. Lepera, former curator of herpetology, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens “Any person who is going into the field to study, observe, or simply enjoy will be interested in this book.”—Kathleen S. Russell, general curator, Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo “The Bartletts have once again produced a wonderfully useful guide that blends excellent photographs with their extensive field experience. The excerpts from their personal field notes generate amphibious short stories guaranteed to draw you out into the woods and wetlands to stalk these creatures for yourself. Who says birdwatchers get to have all the fun?”—Daniel Pearson, Florida Department of Environmental Protection  Florida amphibians can be found from the wildest swamps of the Everglades to the backyards of urban Pensacola. Throughout the state, the night is filled with the ubiquitous songs of tree frogs. Whether you are a professional or backyard naturalist, Florida’s Frogs, Toads, and Other Amphibians is a must-have book to better understand these fascinating creatures.           
With a voice that is both relaxed and reliable, R.D. and Patricia Bartlett provide detailed species descriptions, range maps, and striking color photographs for each of the sixty-three native and five non-native species of amphibians found within the state. They also provide general information such as the difference between toads and frogs and between salamanders and newts, how to tell one species from another, what they eat, how they reproduce, ongoing controversies regarding scientific nomenclature and taxonomy, and where each animal can most commonly be found.           
Accessible to readers of any age, from young children to retirees, the book is an ideal addition to your window ledge or backpack.
