The ecological equivalents of the canary in a coal mine, amphibians can give us a wealth of knowledge about their environments and the overall health of the ecosystem they inhabit. Today with the alarming decline of many amphibian species knowing the patterns of amphibian distribution is essential to biologists and conservationists. Each regional section is written by international amphibian experts. This ambitious work describes the patterns of distribution of amphibians and correlates them with geography, climate, vegetation, and evolutionary history. Also discussed are existing and recommended aspects of amphibian  conservation. A wealth of maps, graphs, and tables are included, making this volume an essential reference for herpotologists, biogeographers, and conservationists. Patterns of Distribution of Amphibians is a valuable resource for any classroom or researcher.
