This genus of African clawed frogs is widely used in laboratory research, especially molecular biology, yet the biology of Xenopus in the natural environment has never been reviewed. This volume provides an account of taxonomy, ecology, behaviour, genetics, immunology, sensory physiology and evolution, with contributions from 26 leading researchers.
This book is more than a reference for those working with Xenopus in the laboratory. Anyone seriously interested in amphibian biology will want a copy, and many of the chapters will interest researchers from a wide range of biological disciplines.--The Quarterly Review of Biology
"It is a wonderful monograph on a fascinating group of frogs, where every chapter manages to amaze the reader with a (thus far mostly unknown) remarkable aspect of Xenopus biology; there seems to be no end to the wonders of this animal" --Hydrobiologia
"Excellent reference for researchers working with the African Clawed Frog in the laboratory, as well as for hobbyist frog keepers."--Reptile & Amphibian Magazine
