Atlas and Red Data Book of
the Frogs of South Africa,
Lesotho and Swaziland
The book has species accounts and distribution
maps for all 115 known frog species of
the region as well as colour photos of the
threatened species and their habitats and
threats. The four introductory chapters cover
project methods, conservation issues, biogeography
of the region’s frogs, and causes of
declines. The distribution maps reflect data
collected during seven years of fieldwork
(1996–2003) and earlier data compiled from
museum records, private collections, the literature
and conservation agencies.
