From Port Augusta to Fraser Island including Tasmania.
This book will help you identify all the frogs hopping and croaking their way round New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, southern South Australia and southern Queensland. A key, with drawings of distinguishing features, plus a colour photograph and distribution map of each frog, will help you to identify your species.
This field guide has been developed from the New South Wales Frog Watch Program, a frog monitoring program involving schools and amateur herpetologists. Frogs are not only important elements in many food chains valuable to humans; they are also good environmental indicators, especially of water quality. Their health, abundance and distribution are linked to the levels of pesticides and other toxins in wet ecosystems.
