Periodical Index - "Ancient" Frogs & Toads

A guide to articles on Fire-Bellied and Midwife Toads, discoglossid-, tailed- and New Zealand frogs appearing in herpetogical periodicals over the past few years



The following is a guide to articles relating to the above frogs and toads that have appeared within herpetological magazines within the last few years. It is an ongoing project, ie I am effectively cataloguing these entries myself from the actual magazines, some of which are harder to get hold of than others (especially when they are no longer being published!). I hope however that some people will find it useful, especially if researching a single species or looking for some care guidance.
