Comprehensive coverage of environmental degradation in the US as seen through the lens of amphibian ecologies. Over recent decades a massive decline has been sustained by many amphibian species, an indication of serious problems that are only now beginning to be properly appreciated
Okoboji wetlands a lesson in natural history by Michael J Lannoo( )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lake Okoboji in northwest Iowa is the jewel of the Iowa Great Lakes. A region of wetlands formed by prairie potholes, the area is rich with lakes, sloughs, fens, creeks, prairies, and kettleholes. In this readable and beautifully illustrated volume, Michael Lannoo presents an extensive natural history of Okoboji and its cherished wetlands that examines that world of our grandparents, compares it to today's world, and extrapolates to the world of our grandchildren
Malformed frogs the collapse of aquatic ecosystems by Michael J Lannoo( )
12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The widespread appearance of frogs with deformed bodies has generated much press coverage over the past decade. Frogs with extra limbs or digits, missing limbs or digits, or misaligned appendages raise an alarming question: Are deformed humans next? Taking a fresh look at this disturbing environmental problem, this reference provides a balanced overview of the science behind the malformed frog phenomenon. Bringing together data from ecology, parasitology, and other disciplines, Michael Lannoo considers the possible causes of these deformities, tells which frogs have been affected, and addresses questions about what these malformations might mean to human populations. Featuring high-quality radiographic images, Malformed Frogs suggests that our focus should be on finding practical solutions, a key component of which will be controlling chemical, nutrient, and pesticide runoff into wetlands."--BOOK JACKET

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leopold's Shack and Ricketts's Lab brings fresh insight to the fertile ideas and writings of two innovators of early twentieth century ecology. In this insightful and important book, Michael J. Lannoo enriches the legacies of Leopold and Ricketts as early conservation-minded environmentalists and suggests that there is still much to be learned from them."Katharine A. Rodger, editor of Breaking Through: Essays, Journals, and Travelogues of Edward F.

The Iowa Lakeside Laboratory a century of discovering the nature of nature by Michael J Lannoo( )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Imagine a place dedicated to the long-term study of nature in nature, a permanent biological field station, a teaching and research laboratory that promotes complete immersion in the natural world. Lakeside Laboratory, founded on the shore of Lake Okoboji in northwestern Iowa in 1909, is just such a place. In this remarkable and insightful book, Michael Lannoo sets the story of Lakeside Lab within the larger story of the primacy of fieldwork, the emergence of conservation biology, and the ability of field stations to address such growing problems as pollution, disease, habitat loss
Status and conservation of midwestern amphibians by Michael J Lannoo( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1990 an international group of biologists, meeting to discuss rumors of declines in the number of amphibians, discovered that amphibian disappearances once thought to be a local problem were not & mdash;the problem was global. And, even more disturbing, amphibians were disappearing not just from areas settled by humans but from regions of the world once believed to be pristine. Under the mantle of the Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force, this timely book addresses three fundamental questions for the midwestern United States: are amphibians declining; if so, why; and, if so, wha

North American amphibians : distribution and diversity by David Martin Green( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts that inhabit North America, numbering nearly 300 species, represent immense variation in form, habitat, distribution and ecology. This volume discusses the diversity of these animals in relation to the historical geography of the North American continent and portrays all of the formally recognized amphibian species to be found in the United States and Canada within a geographical context. Each species is presented with a color photograph, an account of its range, habitat and conservation status, and an up-to-date, full color range map that depicts its known occurrences in relation to the topography of the landscape. This volume reflects the enormous growth in interest about amphibians and increased intensity of scientific research into their biology and distribution that has occurred during the past two decades"--
