This is a book about the frogs of the New Guinea region, where they came from, how they live and why there are so many of them. Short descriptions of all the species recognized at the time of writing are included. The descriptions are necessarily brief because providing a complete detailed description and diagnosis for all 300 species would make a very bulky volume so, for those who need more detail, a reference to the original description of each species, or to a recent revision of the taxon, is included. The primary purpose of this book is to assemble all that is recorded in the literature about New Guinea's frogs together with the author's accumulated data from twenty-five years of residence and research in Papua New Guinea.
