Frogs and Other Amphibians Summary

Frogs and Other Amphibians by Paul Starosta

Amphibians appeared on earth 360 million years ago, as the first four-footed animals and pioneers in the conquest of dry land. The water, land or tree-dwelling frogs, toads, newts and salamanders of our childhood are but pallid representatives of an infinitely varied family. Having originally trained as a biologist, Paul Starosta decided to combine his two main loves - nature and photography - to, logically, become a nature photographer. In this book he focuses his attention on the incredibly vibrant world of frogs, toads, newts and salamanders. Far from the brown and green slime-dwellers of childhood pond-dippings, the creatures depicted here are positively jewel-like, their colours further enhanced by being photographed against a black background. Teddy Moncuit is a great traveller and nature lover, who has carried out many assignments in the tropics. His texts provide a precise and passionate account of their fantastic adaptation strategies, revealing obscure, surprising, or even tragic aspects of their little-known lives. AUTHOR: Paul Starosta has worked as professional photographer for more than twenty years. He has published over thirty books, in several languages, winning several awards. Teddy Moncuit worked together on Reptiles, which won the Jacques Lacroix prize awarded by the Academie Francaise. SELLING POINTS: Exquisite colour photographs of some of the world's most surprisingly beautiful creatures. Photographer Paul Starosta has captured on film incredible frogs and amphibians of all shapes, sizes and colours, illustrating fascinating creatures with surreal bodies painted in outlandish colours An unfailing tribute to nature as an artist, lavishly illustrated with shapes, colours and ingenuity, inspiring respect, recognition and thought 120 colour illustrations
