A stunning, comprehensive, one-of-a-kind reference work on the life histories of Australian frogs is now available. The eggs and tadpoles of Australian frogs has been a study waiting to happen for a very long time. Tadpoles and Frogs of Australia provides us with a unique, complete coverage of the life histories of the entire frog fauna of the Australian continent which will become a lasting contribution to frog conservation both nationally and globally. This 832 page book, with hard cover and dust jacket includes prolifically illustrated descriptions of all currently known adult frogs, and the eggs, tadpoles and metamorphs of most species. Full colour throughout with over 3060 photos and drawings, it is a must-have reference for amateurs, students and professionals.
Marion Anstis has had a life long fascination with the life history of frogs, and her quest for tadpole identification has culminated in her book Tadpoles of South-eastern Australia, which won the most sought-after prize in Australian zoological publishing, the 2002 Whitley Medal. Marion is also an accomplished artist and photographer of tadpoles and frogs.
