I live in FNQ rainforest and have loved the frogs that breed here. I have several books but they are always only about Frogs until this one never enough information about tadpoles and eggs and embryo. I am learning so much from this tome and and still filled with wonder at what Marion Anstis has achieved.
Very few books offer a total coverage of their subject and very few writers are able to produce work of this high standard.
This is THE most comprehensive guide available for Australian tadpoles and frogs - a truly staggering amount of work has gone into this. It makes identifying tadpoles something within reach for natural historians.
