About this book

Australia is home to more than 240 species of frogs, many of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

The Photographic Field Guide to Australian Frogs provides readers with the tools to confidently identify 242 species and five recognised subspecies. It includes detailed information on the distribution, habitat preferences and call of each frog species, as well as fully illustrated keys to genera to assist with identification. Multiple photographs of each species show variation in colour and pattern as well as features used for identification such as thigh colouration, skin texture, belly colour and patterning, eye colour and extent of webbing between the toes.

With a strong focus on illustrating variation and key diagnostic features, Photographic Field Guide to Australian Frogs will enable frog enthusiasts, environmental professionals and research scientists to identify Australian frog species with a high level of confidence.

Media reviews

"Overall, this book is a field guide to Australian frogs unlike any other. Wonderfully detailed, extensively comparative, superbly illustrated and, most notably, useful for identifying Australian frogs."
FrogCall No. 173, June 2021

"Mark Sanders' Photographic Field Guide to Australian Frogs would serve as a valuable addition to the libraries of field ecologists, amateur froggers and anyone else looking for a reliable frog field guide for use anywhere in Australia."
– Ed Meyer, Frogsheet, 2021
