With many frog populations declining or disappearing and developmental malformations and disease afflicting others, scientists, conservationists, and concerned citizens need up-to-date, accurate information. Frogs of the United States and Canada is a comprehensive resource for those trying to protect amphibians as well as for researchers and wildlife managers who study biodiversity. From acrobatic tree frogs to terrestrial toads, C. Kenneth Dodd Jr. offers an unparalleled synthesis of the biology, behavior, and conservation of frogs in North America.

This two-volume, fully referenced resource provides color photographs and range maps for 106 native and nonindigenous species and includes detailed information on
- past and present distribution
- life history and demography
- reproduction and diet
- landscape ecology and evolution
- - diseases, parasites, and threats from toxic substances
- conservation and management

C. Kenneth Dodd Jr. is an associate professor (courtesy) in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, University of Florida, and is a former president of the Herpetologists’ League. He is the author of The Amphibians of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

"A MUST have for those with an interest in the frogs of the region!"

"The best frog book ever written."

"The amount of information, despite Dodd’s introductory disclaimer, is nothing short of amazing... this set has become my first stop when I seek information about anurans, and it is a must-have for anyone interested in frogs."

"A MUST have for those with an interest in the frogs in the region!"

"A 'must' definitive 'bible' resource for any with more than a casual interest in frogs."

"These very well-written, indispensable volumes are exceptionally detailed, accurate, and up-to-date... Essential."

"This book is useful not just for biology teachers and researchers but also for wildlife managers and others involved in conservation. It is really a very useful reference source, a sort of a mini encyclopedia on frogs."

"This set should be on every North American herpetologist's bookshelf and in every academic and research institution library on the continent. Both professional biologists and serious amateurs will find the contribution to be the best summary of knowledge on the biology, natural history, and conservation for each species."
