This lavishly illustrated new edition of Australian Frogs is the definitive resource on the subject, with updated tables and supplementary text on the fossil record which is vital to historical understanding. Tyler covers the origins, environment, nomenclature, habits, and biology of frogs.

He provides information, as well, on an unprecedented study to control populations of the Cane Toad, Bufo marinus.
