...the frogs, toads, and salamanders found in our state, all 15 species of them. They come complete with their life histories, distribution maps, and full-color photos in a 52-page 6x9-inch guide ready for use in the field.
Amphibians are as important to us as life itself. They monitor the health of our surroundings for us, making them an early-warning system when something goes wrong in our environment, something that could affect our health as well as their own.
