Product Description


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

(Ian Paulsen The Guardian)

The best frog book ever written.

(Whit Gibbons Aiken Standard)

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.

(Robert Powell IRCF Reptiles & Amphibians)

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

(Birdbooker Report)

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

(Midwest Book Review)

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.

(Deekay Daulat Biz India Magazine)

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.

(Stephen J. Hecnar Herpetological Review)
