This volume reflects the enormous growth in interest about amphibians and the increased intensity of scientific research into their fascinating biology and continent-wide distribution that has occurred during the past two decades. This atlas presents the spectacular diversity of North American amphibians in a geographic context. It covers all formally recognized amphibian species found in the U.S. and Canada, many of which are endangered or threatened with extinction. Maps and accounts of each species provide current information about distribution, habitat and conservation. Researchers, professional herpetologists, and interested readers will value this volume as a guide and reference. Designed for portability, North American Amphibians features complete distribution maps and color photographs. "--"@en
schema:description""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"--"@en
