About this book

Frogs are remarkably variable creatures. Many species adopt different colours or patterns by day or night. In some cases, males are different from females, and many species can change their appearance remarkably when breeding.

Field Guide to the Frogs of Queensland provides a comprehensive photographic guide to the 132 species of frogs in Queensland, Australia's most species-rich state. It enables identification of all Queensland species and clearly points out pitfalls that may lead to misidentification. Species profiles list common and scientific names, information on size, call and preferred habitat, as well as points of interest for each species. The conservation status of all threatened species is listed and there are special sections devoted to disappearing frogs and the Cane Toad.

Generously illustrated with one or more photographs for each species, Field Guide to the Frogs of Queensland also includes distribution maps, line illustrations which demonstrate key features, and keys to each family, genus and species.
