Amphibians of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East: A Photographic GuideArtist/Author: Dufresnes, Christophe
This photographic field guide is a practical, compact and yet exhaustive reference covering all European amphibian species, rom familiar frogs and toads, to exotic salamanders and caecilians.
Amphibians of Britain and Europe covers all 127 species found in the region; each species account describes their appearance, habitat and behaviour, and includes accurate and up-to-date distribution maps, and photos that emphasis 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 organised by family, with each account covering points of interest such as behaviour, subspecies, eggs and tadpoles and dimorphism, all in rich photographic detail
Herpetofauna Workers’ ManualArtist/Author: Gent, Tony, Steve Gibson
An indispensable manual for conservationists throughout the UK and much of mainland Europe. It provides conservation guidance on the twelve non-marine amphibian and reptile species native to the British Isles. It covers a wide range of issues, from advice on surveying to reintroductions.
Frogs of Australia: Reed Concise GuideArtist/Author: Anstis, Marion
Amphibian biology, volume eleven, status and decline of amphibians Eastern Hemisphere, part three: Western Europe.Artist/Author: Heatwole, Harold and John W. Wilkinson, editors.
This volume assesses the status of amphibian decline and extinction in Britain, Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal. Experts from each country contribute a chapter describing the ecological background and the conservation status of affected species, with an emphasis on native species. As well as infectious diseases and parasites (also covered in a general chapter), threats take the form of introduced and invasive species, pollution, destruction and alteration of habitat, and climate change. All these countries have monitoring schemes and conservation programmes, whose origins and activities are described. Recommendations for action are also made.
volume one: the integument [stock id 4018], volume two: social behaviour , volume three: sensory perception , volume four: palaeontology , volume five: osteology , volume six: endocrinology , volume seven: systematics , volume eight: amphibian decline , volume nine part one , volume nine part two [33481, volume nine part three  and volume ten . Further volumes are planned to cover such topics as embryology, endocrinology, biomechanics, ecology, populations, life histories, digestion, circulation, anatomy, cell biology and biogeography.
The ecology and behavior of amphibians.Artist/Author: Wells, Kentwood D.
With more than six thousand species, amphibians are more diverse than mammals and are found on every continent save Antarctica. This title serves as a celebration of amphibian life and the ecological and behavioural adaptations that have made it a successful component of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
