About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Swahili

Amphibians of the Taita Hills describes the amphibians (frogs) of the Taita Hills in south-eastern Kenya. It will help demystify what amphibians are, and their importance in conservation, as well as make readers aware of the importance of their environment, especially the indigenous forest upon which they depend. Included in Amphibians of the Taita Hills is information on the biodiversity and the climate (temperature and rainfall) of the area. Each species account has a graph depicting the different months of the year that the frogs call, eggs and tadpoles hatch, and the adult phase. It also shows where to find them, their size (compared to a human hand), and has a coloured photograph of the species. Amphibians of the Taita Hills is in two languages (English one half, and Swahili the other half).
