Summary, etc.:
This book is a comprehensive guide to the large, diverse, and important group of animals: frogs and toads. With more than 5,800 species currently identified, frogs and toads are the most familiar and most abundant amphibians on the planet. Every aspect of their lives is explored in this fully illustrated reference book, including the origins, classification, size and shape, colors, enemies, food, reproduction, life-cycle, and habitat of frogs and toads from around the world. The book also explores frog's interaction with humans, from modern day collection for the meat trade, scientific research, and the trade in exotic pets, to how their survival is threatened by over-exploration, habitat destruction, climate change, and disease. Drawing on the latest research and the recently revised classification system, and illustrated with stunning color photographs throughout, this guide will appeal to amateur naturalists and all those with an interest in the world of frogs and toads.--From book jacket.
