About this book

Packed with outstanding photographs, this practical, compact yet comprehensive reference is the definitive guide to all 138 amphibian species found in the Western Palearctic.

From familiar frogs and toads to exotic salamanders and newts, the author's detailed text describes each species' appearance, habitat and behaviour, and includes useful information on their classifications, ecology and life cycles. Grouped by families for ease of use, each species account includes an accurate distribution map and colour photographs annotated with crucial details to help swiftly identify species in the field.

Written by field biologist Christophe Dufresnes, this is the ultimate photographic guide for amateurs and expert herpetologists alike.

  • Incredibly practical and detailed field guide
    By Xavier 4 Jan 2019 Written for Paperback
    This field guide is quite practical being lightweight, relatively compact and will easily fit into a deep trouser pocket.

    The ID photos are incredibly clear and are visually beautiful. The range maps are also clear and accurate (created using IUCN maps and adjusted according to recent data). They are useful for differentiating between similar species (eg. Pelophylax sp. or the subspecies of fire salamanders). Each species account includes size information, habitat preferences, reproductive period, any sexual dimorphism, call descriptions, tadpole morphology and IUCN Red List status.

    This is an essential book for herping enthusiasts as well as general naturalists in the Western Palearctic!
