Amphibians of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East: A Photographic Guide (Bloomsbury Naturalist) (Paperback)
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.
