Abstract:

Tyrone Hayes works to discover the effects pesticides have on frogs and, in turn, us.

"In Pamela S. Turner's The Frog Scientist, readers will join Tyrone and his students as they work in the field and in a lab filled with frogs of all shapes and sizes (and with unique personalities, too!). Stunning photographs by Andy Cormins abound as readers follow the step-by-step progress of a scientific experiment (and discover that firm answers to complex questions aren't easy to come by). The Frog Scientist is a story of one man's commitment to frogs -- and to the health of our environment." -- Book jacket.
