About this book

Amphibians have a particular fascination. Their evolutionary role has been vital, providing the crucial link between aquatic life forms and terrestrial ones; today they play an important part in maintaining the delicate balance of nature. This guide includes all the species found in Europe. The 101 colour photographs illustrate the amphibians in their natural habitat and the accompanying pictograms provide information on appearance, classification, distribution and habits. In recent years there has been an alarming decline in European herpetofauna; this guide outlines the main threats and suggests practical measures for protection.
