This photographic field guide is a practical, compact and yet exhaustive reference covering all European amphibian species, from familiar frogs and toads, to exotic salamanders and caecilians.

Amphibians of Britain and Europe
covers all 127 species found in the region, from familiar frogs and toads, to exotic salamanders and caecilians. Each species account describes their appearance, habitat and behavior, and includes accurate and up-to-date distribution maps, and photos that emphasize key identification features, assisting rapid identification in the field.

Introductory sections describe the general biology of amphibians, their classification, ecology, life-history cycles, diversity and conservation. The species are then described in sections organized by family, with each account covering points of interest such as behavior, subspecies, eggs and tadpoles, and dimorphism, all in rich photographic detail.

Christophe Dufresnes is a French herpetologist and researcher. After obtaining a masters degree in the wilderness of the Australian outback, Christophe earned a PhD at the University of Lausanne. His primary research relates to the genetics, diversity and conservation of amphibians and involves expeditions all over Europe.
