Frogs are remarkably variable creatures. Many species adopt different colours or patterns by day or night. In some cases, males are different from females, and many species can change their appearance remarkably when breeding.

This book introduces the Australian frog fauna and includes a painting of, and distribution maps for each of the species and 5 sub-species of Australian frogs currently recognised inmostly based on Dr H G Coggers' taxonomy.

More than new species of Australian frogs have been discovered and described since Frogs depend on water to breed, with most frogs breeding in shallow ponds, marshes and streams.

However, some species live in areas where water is scarce or far away, for example tree frogs in tropical rainforests.

These frogs lay their eggs in tree hollows or in the cup-like bases of certain plants (like bromeliads) where water collects.

The other major family native to Australia is Myobatrachidae, consisting of 17 to 22 genera and species. Myobatrachidae is endemic to Australia, New Guinea and a few small islands, however the highest diversity can be found in Australia.

Relationship between residual contrasts in testes mass and risk of sperm competition across species from the Australian anuran family Myobatrachidae. To examine the influence of oviposition location in a phylogenetic context, we generated a dichotomous variable by categorizing species as either ovipositing into the external environment or into.

Australian Tree Frogs: FAMILY: Tree Frogs. Bleating Tree Frog (Litoria dentata) The Bleating Tree Frog is brown above with lighter irregular bands on each side from the eye down the body. It has a dark stripe from the snout, through the eye and onto the ear.

The gastric-brooding frogs or platypus frogs (Rheobatrachus) were a genus of ground-dwelling frogs native to Queensland in eastern genus consisted of only two species, both of which became extinct in the mids. The genus was unique because it contained the only two known frog species that incubated the prejuvenile stages of their offspring in the stomach of the mother.

Western Australia is home to more than one third of the known frog species in Australia and new ones are still being discovered.

This guide presents up to date information on all species, including their distribution and habitat — including the cane toad, which has just arrived in the state. The book also features extensive colour photographs and location maps to assist identification.

Body shape is predicted to differ among species for functional reasons and in relation to environmental niche and phylogenetic history. We quantified morphological differences in shape and size among % of the species and all 21 genera of the Australo‐Papuan endemic myobatrachid frogs to test the hypothesis that habitat type predicts body shape in this radiation.
