Product Description

Review

Duellman and Trueb truly review the biology of amphibians, covering most conceivable topics from cytogenetics and development to biogeography and phylogeny... There is no recent textbook on amphibian biology that is worthy of comparison. Science An impressive review of current knowledge concerning all aspects of amphibian biology. The authors have organized a tremendous number of facts, observations, and theories around the complementary themes of structure and evolution... A major undertaking. Bioscience The text is clear and concise and richly illustrated... This book goes some way towards being all one could wish for and is likely to be an important source of reference. Nature

Format: Paperback
This reference provides a solid overview of amphibians, and has long been used as a university textbook on the subject. While other references are more suitable for amphibian neuroanatomy, this reference provides a rich description of amphibian reproductive behavior, development from egg to larvae to metamorphosis, ecology and evolution, as well as a chapter on the musculoskeletal system and another on other anatomical/physiological aspects of amphibians.

As a herpetologist, I find this book very complete and still up to date. The contents are well chosen and include every single aspect of their biology. The authors succeeded in making a extremely well chosen summary of the complex biology of the Amphibians.

Lots of good information. A bit mind-numbing in the way textbooks ... Feb. 12 2015

Lots of good information. A bit mind-numbing in the way textbooks often are, but if you like amphibians and already have a basic understanding of related terms + anatomy its not too hard to follow along. I wouldn't really recommend this as a beginner's book, but if you've kept amphibians as pets for a while and want to expand on what beginner's guides have already told you, this is a great resource.
