About this book

The present book gives a complete account of all recognised species and subspecies of treefrogs in continental Africa and its adjacent islands.

Of the 254 forms treated in this book, more than two hundred are illustrated with colour photos – in the majority of cases published for the first time. Sonograms visually portraying the voices are given for all forms where the voices have been recorded and distribution maps are provided for all forms.

The author, Dr. Arne Schiøtz, has studied the amphibia for many years during expeditions to various parts of the continent, has published monographs and papers on this subject and has described thirty-eight species and subspecies new to science.
