Biology of Amphibians
by William E. Duellman and Linda Trueb
Edition: 1st., 1986
This is the widely acclaimed, preeminent reference and text on all aspects of amphibian biology, including their life history, ecology, morphology, and evolution. Copiously illustrated with original drawings and photographs and meticulously referenced with more than 2,500 bibliographic entries, it has proved indispensable to professional biologists and students alike. Now reissued in paperback with an updated preface by the authors, Biology of Amphibians remains the standard work in its field.
This is an authoritative text on the amphibians of the world, covering a wide range of general topics in a scholastic textbook format. This hardbound copy is in near-new condition. It has been stamped in several places with the personal stamp of a former owner, but otherwise the condition is excellent. This is an excellent addition to a collector assembling a well-rounded herp library. The book is a wealth of knowledge and information. It is illustrated in black and white, with photographs, drawings and line illustratrations on nearly every page. It's a heavy book, five pounds, and shipping to international addresses may cost more than the very reasonable price of the book.
