About this book

With a new foreword by Roy McDiarmid. The Wrights spent years assembling the wealth of material on frogs and toads appearing in this widely used handbook. With abundant photographs, colour descriptions, journal notes from the field, and excerpts from the literature, their personalized natural history emphasized amphibians observed in the wild. In the new foreword McDiarmid brings the book into historical perspective and supplies information to bring it up to date. There are accounts of more than 100 species and subspecies covering such topics as common and scientific name, range, habitat, size, colour, and breeding.
