Amphibians Of Great Smoky Mountains

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Most guides to animals in parks are intended primarily as identification aids and include relatively little on the biology of the species. Dodd s book is much more, with detailed information on all aspects of the natural history of these species. Biologists, students, and visitors to Great Smoky Mountains National Park will find this an indispensable guide.
