About this title

Synopsis:

"This book is an outstanding contribution to our understanding and enjoyment of frogs by an eminent leader in the field of amphibian biology. It is written in an engaging style, which reflects the author's long interest in popularizing natural history subject matter."―Robert C. Stebbins, Emeritus Professor of Zoology and Emeritus Curator in Herpetology, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, BerkeleyAustralia is home to some of the most interesting and unusual frogs in the world and Michael J. Tyler is acknowledged to be the foremost expert on them. This lavishly illustrated new edition of Australian Frogs is the definitive resource on the subject, with updated tables and supplementary text on the fossil record which is vital to historical understanding. Tyler covers the origins, environment, nomenclature, habits, and biology of frogs. Tyler writes conversationally about the amphibian creatures he clearly loves, and his book does not require detailed technical knowledge. He does, however, provide a wealth of information on the ways and needs of Australian frogs in all their fragile variety.
