The identification of the eggs and tadpoles of Australian frogs was a study waiting to happen for

a very long time until Marion Anstis addressed this with the first edition of Tadpoles and Frogs of

Australia. Now, with this second edition, we have the revised complete life histories of virtually

the entire frog fauna of the Australian continent which continues this lasting contribution to frog


It contains comprehensive information about Australian tadpoles as well as the eggs,

metamorphosed frogs and adult frogs, accompanied by detailed colour photographs and line

illustrations. In fact this book has been described as "the most comprehensive and thorough

treatment of a continental frog fauna that there has ever been."

Using meticulous keys and descriptive characters, Tadpoles and Frogs of Australia helps

readers to identify which tadpole or egg belongs to which frog. The vast photographic array

and multitude of illustrations show live frogs, tadpoles and eggs at various stages in their lives.

This magnificent second edition, including five new species described since the first

edition, continues to be a worthy to the library of any naturalist, student or professional

with a keen interest in identifying our frogs and learning more about their fascinating life

histories and is an invaluable tool contributing greatly towards our understanding of how we

can help Australian frogs to survive.
