Comprehensive summary of Honduran amphibian fauna covering 116 species of caecilians, salamanders, and frogs, and including members of nine families: Caeciliidae, Plethodontidae, Bufonidae, Centrolenidae, Hylidae, Leptodactylidae, Microhylidae, Ranidae, and Rhinophrynidae. McCranie and Wilson's intensive study has resulted in a magnificent volume, extensively illustrated with identification keys, and containing a discussion of reproductive modes and ecomorphological guilds, distribution, and essays about the human impact on, and future of, the Honduran amphibian fauna. The bulk of The Amphibians of Honduras consists of detailed accounts of the species (each one includes synonymy, range, diagnosis, description of adult [and tadpole where applicable], references to published illustrations, remarks, ecological distribution, natural history, etymology, and specimens examined).
