The Laboratory Animal Reference Series published by the GRG Press has yielded another excellent pocket reference for a less commonly used non-mammalian animal of biomedical research. Xenopus spp have increased in popularity as laboratory animals and continue to serve an important role in biomedical research. The Laboratory Xenopus sp. is a practical reference for the humane care and maintenance of captive clawed frogs. It is well referenced and provides important biological information on husbandry, veterinary care, and experimental methods. This reference is thorough but brief and provides a good overview of the subjects. The sections of the book that focus on husbandry and experimental methods are particularly valuable. The section on veterinary care is well written and reflects the author's mastery of the subject. It is illustrated appropriately and fairly priced

"This book succeeds admirably in providing a convenient … source of information addressing the unique characteristics and needs of Xenopus sp. in laboratory settings … providing a wealth of information that is hard to find in one place. The book is comprehensive, easy to read, and has complete and current references. It should be in the library of every veterinarian and researcher interested in the biology, breeding, care, use, and common diseases of Xenopus sp."

"The Laboratory Xenopus sp.: A Volume in The Laboratory Animal Pocket Reference Series successfully follows the series' general format to provide easily accessible and useful information regarding the humane care and use of Xenopus frogs used in research, instruction, or testing.
…General information is presented as applicable to both Xenopus laevis and Xenopus tropicalis, but each species is also discussed independently when differences exist.
…This book would be useful for anyone providing husbandry and/or veterinary care for Xenopus sp. in a research environment. It includes abundant practical husbandry and clinical information, and it is written clearly for comprehension by personnel with varied educational backgrounds. There have been limited publications with extensive information about Xenopus sp. previously, and this book is a welcome comprehensive resource for the Xenopus sp. utilizing laboratory animal science community."
―Leanne Alworth, in American Society of Laboratory Animal Practitioners
