Editorial Reviews


Anyone with an interest in the distribution and/or abundance of amphibians will find something of value in this remarkable collection of essays.


There can be no doubt that Patterns of Distribution of Amphibians is destined to become the standard reference on amphibian zoogeography. It is an impressive book containing a breathtaking wealth of detail, while at the same time encompassing an extraordinarily broad subject area.

(Herpetological Review)

Patterns of Distribution of Amphibians provides a gateway to the pertinent literature on amphibian distribution for each geographic region of the globe. It should be on the shelves in the herpetology or biogeography section of any academic or research library.


This book is an instant classic reference, rich in data and comparison and contrast, a tribute to the industry of all its authors, but especially of its editor who has been a ever-growing force in amphibian systematics and zoogeography over four decades.

(Canadian Field-Naturalist)


Duellman and Trueb truly review the biology of amphibians, covering most conceivable topics from cytogenetics and development to biogeography and phylogeny... There is no recent textbook on amphibian biology that is worthy of comparison.


An impressive review of current knowledge concerning all aspects of amphibian biology. The authors have organized a tremendous number of facts, observations, and theories around the complementary themes of structure and evolution... A major undertaking.


The text is clear and concise and richly illustrated... This book goes some way towards being all one could wish for and is likely to be an important source of reference.
