Overview

The Frogs and Toads of North America: A Comprehensive Guide to Their Identification,Behavior, and Calls by Lang Elliott, Carlos Davidson, Carl Gerhardt

A beautiful and comprehensive photographic guide that features all of the frogs of North America and includes an expert audio recording of their calls.

From the olive-and-black Pig Frog, which gets its name from its low-pitched, piglike grunt, to the X-marked and familiar-sounding Spring Peeper, frogs and toads are fascinating to casual nature lovers as well as expert herpetologists. Covering all 101 species in the United States and Canada, this book contains natural history information, identification tips, range and habitat information, and behavior profiles. It also includes detailed descriptions of calls that readers can listen to themselves on an accompanying 70-minute audio CD recorded by experts in the field, as well as sections on conservation issues, public participation in census programs, tips on photography and sound recording, and keeping frogs and toads as pets.
