About this book

Amphibians of North Africa is a comprehensive compilation of available data on the amphibians and reptiles found in various ecosystems across North West Africa and parts of the Mediterranean region. The first of its kind, this book is essential to identifying and understanding the ecological role of regional herpetofauna and its conservational importance.

This book examines the biological origins and diversity of amphibians in North Africa, going on to explore the diverse ecosystems these animals inhabit in the region, including deserts, grasslands, and subtropical forests. It features detailed descriptions of the adult and larvae stages of species such as the North African fire salamander, the common painted frog, Brongersma's toad, and the Mediterranean tree frog.

Amphibians of North Africa is a vital resource for herpetology and ecology students and researchers to help identify, understand, and conserve these amphibians and reptiles in their various habitats across the North African and Mediterranean regions. Additionally, this book exemplifies the importance of amphibian and reptile protection from habitat loss and destruction worldwide.
