Australia is home to some of the most interesting and unusual frogs in the world, and Michael J. Tyler is acknowledged to be the foremost expert on them. 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. The topic of declining frog populations, noted in American newspapers as a harbinger of ecological distress, has become the subject of a new chapter. Tyler discusses dietary studies and explains the effect on frogs of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and heavy metals. He provides information, as well, on an unprecedented study to control populations of the Cane Toad, Bufo marinus.
