Throughout much of the world, frog populations are declining and some species are disappearing totally. In Australia, several species have become extinct in the past 25 years. This revised and updated guide provides concise accounts of all the known frogs of Australia. There are 230 species within the five native frog families: Hylidae, Limnodynastidae, Microhylidae, Myobatrachidae and Ranidae. Also included are the introduced Cane Toad and nine ‘stowaway’ species that have arrived in Australia. The text for each species includes details of size, status, distribution, habitat, behaviour and advertisement call. Each species is accompanied by a map of Australia showing its known distribution, and a full-colour painted illustration. Closely related frogs are shown in identical poses so that comparisons can be made readily. The introductory section of the book covers frog biology and habitats and includes notes on families and genera.

The identification of the eggs and tadpoles of Australian frogs has been a study waiting to happen for a very long time. Marion Anstis began the process of addressing this with her first book Tadpoles of South-eastern Australia: a guide with keys. Now, with Tadpoles and Frogs of Australia, for the first time we have the complete life histories of virtually the entire frog fauna of the Australian continent, which will become a lasting contribution to frog conservation. It contains comprehensive information about Australian tadpoles as well as the eggs, metamorphosed frogs and adult frogs, accompanied by detailed colour photographs. In fact this book has been described as 'the most comprehensive and thorough treatment of a continental frog fauna that there has ever been'. Using meticulous keys, descriptive characters and a multitude of illustrations, Tadpoles and Frogs of Australia helps readers to identify which tadpole or egg belongs to which frog. The vast photographic array shows live frogs, tadpoles and eggs at various stages in their lives. This magnificent and unique volume is a worthy addition to the library of any naturalist, student or professional with a keen interest in identifying our frogs and learning more about their fascinating life histories. Tadpoles and Frogs of Australia will serve as an invaluable and fundamental tool by contributing greatly towards our understanding of how we can help Australian frogs survive.
