Frogs and Frogging in South Africa has now been completely revised to make it more useful and accessible for people who want to observe and appreciate these fascinating creatures. New information has been added on attracting frogs into gardens and on how to undertake projects such as building a pond. Nomenclature and taxonomy have been updated and the identification descriptions have been improved to make them easier to use. All of the species found in Africa south of latitude 22° S are described and illustrated. Frogs and Frogging is based on rigorous, up-to-date science. Part 1 tells how frogs function, how best to find, identify and observe them and how to attract them to garden habitats. Part 2 ist about frog habitats and environmental niches to which different species have adapted. Part 3 features a simple field guide for easy and accurate identification of species in the region, a key to identification of tadpoles and eggs, a systematic list of all frog species occurring in South Africa as well as a glossary and advice for further reading.
