Description:

Harmless, colourful, melodious and ecologically vital', frogs are alo fragile and threatened, and are key indicators of the state of our environment. Following in the footsteps of Complete Guide to the Snakes of SA and Guide to the Reptiles of SA, this guide offers the most authoritative and comprehensive treatment of frogs of the region ever produced. It covers all aspects of both frog and tadpole biology and behaviour. All 160 frog species, along with their tadpole stages, are fully described, giving conservation status, calls, habitat and habits. There are large, full-colour images of each species, detailed keys and clear summary panels showing 'Distinctive characters' and 'Key ID points'. Calls for most species are on the accompanying CD, and spectrograms are provided, offering the surest method of identifying these secretive and often cryptic creatures. For all nature lovers, amateur froggers, students, as well as professional scientists, this is an inspiring and significant guide.
