With 39 contributions from 16 countries, the present volume about the moor frog (Rana arvalis) offers the most voluminous collection published to date on a single European amphibian species. The volume is part of a symposium held between September 11 and 13 in Osnabrück 2008 (Germany).
The moor frog and its conservation should serve as a key factor for the protection of often highly endangered habitats such as moorland edges, riverine forests as well as ponds in less intensively used agricultural areas. Furthermore, the presented data can serve as a basis for future conservation measures for species listed in the Euro-pean Fauna-Flora-Habitat directive.
