About this book

Language: French with bilingual key in English and French

Resulting from numerous field explorations, examination of museums collections and scientific literature, this book is the first guide dealing with central Africa and Angola amphibians. The geographic framework and natural habitats are presented; the distribution of the species and the endemicity are analysed in connection with the ecological constraints (rainfall, temperature, elevation...); detailed information about biology and ecology arranged by habitat and country as well as a discussion on conservation and biodiversity protection for each country are provided.

A table shows endemicity and distribution of all species in the area covered by the guide. An identification key (bilingual French/English), fully original and lavishly illustrated with numerous high quality drawings (made by the authors), allows easy identification of the amphibians from Gabon and Mbini. Illustration is completed by about thirty colour photographic plates showing the main habitats and more than 60 species. Finally an exhaustive list of references (sorted by countries and taxa) and a glossary complete the book.

Summary in French:
Voici le premier guide sur les amphibiens d'Afrique centrale et d'Angola. Il est le fruit de la synthèse de nombreuses prospections sur le terrain et de la constitution des collections des musées et de la littérature scientifique. L'iconographie est complétée par une trentaine de planches photographiques en couleur illustrant les principaux habitats et plus de 60 espèces dans leur milieu.

Le lecteur y retrouvera la description des milieux naturels, la liste complète des espèces rencontrées, avec clé d’identification bilingue français/anglais, caractères biologiques et problèmes de conservation. Accessible à tous, ce guide s'adresse aussi bien aux spécialistes tant sa documentation est complète, qu'aux amateurs qui seront séduits par sa présentation claire.
