About this book

From the foreword:

"The amphibians of North East India have been worked on by many scientists in the past. The Monographic work by Chanda (1994), dealing with 54 species of Anurans from North East India, had been the most comprehensive account on the group so far. Under the Conservation of Biodiversity Programme, the Government of India is taking Biological Sciences to the masses. Towards this effort, the Zoological Survey of India is bringing out publications to popularise science. The Pictorial Guide series on various groups of animals published by the Zoological Survey of India are the outcome of this scheme. The latest to add to this category is the present work by the authors. They have taken care to depict as many pictures as possible of the amphibians of North East India. The text contains 110 species of anurans, eight species of caecilians and one species of salamander. The diagnostic characters, habitat and distribution of the species have been incorporated. It is intended to serve students, researchers and laymen alike."
