Throughout much of the world, frog populations are declining and some species are disappearing totally. In Australia, several species have become extinct in the past 25 years. This fully illustrated guide to all the known frogs of Australia provides concise accounts of 227 species within the five main frog families: Hylidae, Limnodynastidae, Microhylidae, Myobatrachidae and Ranidae. It also includes the introduced Cane Toad and provides notes on other ‘stowaway’ species that have arrived in Australia. The text for each species includes details of size, status, distribution, habitat, behaviour and advertisement call. Each species is accompanied by a map of Australia showing its known distribution, and a full-colour painted illustration. Closely related frogs are shown in identical poses so that comparisons can be made readily. The introductory section of the book covers frog biology and habitats and includes notes on families and genera.
