The Freshwater Ecosystems of Suriname

This book is a compilation of these data: it is the first comprehensive survey of the aquatic ecology of one of the peripheral areas of Amazonia.

The Freshwater Ecosystems of Suriname

Since the limnological research on the man-made Brokopondo Reservoir in the 'sixties, numerous data have been collected on the ecology of Surinam rivers and swamps. This book is a compilation of these data: it is the first comprehensive survey of the aquatic ecology of one of the peripheral areas of Amazonia. The geomorphology of the country, situated on the Guyana Shield, is the main factor determining the limnological properties of rivers and creeks. This results in an overall picture that is quite different from Amazonia. The emphasis of The Ecosystems of Suriname is on the living aquatic resources, including aquatic and swamp vegetation, phyto and zooplankton, macroinvertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals. Although most of Suriname is still in a pristine state, the human impact on fresh waters is considerable in those areas of rapid economic development, emphasizing the necessity of conservation measures, specially tailored for aquatic ecosystems. The Ecosystems of Suriname is a valuable acquisition for all scientists, environmental managers and others interested in tropical aquatic ecology.

Unusual Life Cycles of Amphibians

Have you ever heard of a frog that freezes solid in winter? What about a toad that carries its eggs on its back? Young readers will learn all about wood frogs, suriname toads, and other amphibians with unusual life cycles.

Reptiles and Amphibians Dot to Dot

They slither and slink; some live in the desert, many others in water. They have scales or shells, and sometimes claws. What are they? Connect the dots and you'll see--they're reptiles and amphibians. You may even have one as a pet, but these creatures are lots more interesting in the wild. As you draw these 30 pictures, of snakes, turtles, iguanas, salamanders, and toads, you'll also get fascinating facts about each animal. Find out their size, where they live, what they eat, how to pronounce their names, what's most intriguing about them, and how to color in your drawing so it is scientifically accurate. The anole, for instance, is a reptile that grows up to 8 inches long, and is found in Texas, the southeastern U.S., the Bahamas, and Cuba. It munches flies, beetles, and other small insects; and though it's usually a bright green (the better to stay hidden in foliage), it can change to brown. Other reptiles you'll meet include the box turtle, five-lined skink, flying dragon, gila monster, goanna, and 12 more. Among the 13 amphibians are the crested newt, greater siren, green tree frog, and mudpuppy.

Why Do Frogs Have Teeth

Not many people report being bitten by a frog. But many will notice the weird ooze that seeps out of a toad’s skin when they’re picked up. These are just two strange adaptations that have helped amphibians survive in their environment. That’s also why salamanders need the ability to regrow limbs—or even part of their brain! Curious future scientists learn all about these awesome adaptations as well as other important topics such as the unique amphibian life cycle, all complemented by full-color, up-close photographs.

Amphibian Survey and Monitoring Handbook

"Evidence bases for conservation are becoming increasingly important to convince landowners and politicians of the need to take action in defence of species and habitats all around the world. A valuable feature of this book is its emphasis on collecting and analysing such essential information." Trevor Beebee, Phyllomedusa Amphibians are among the most globally endangered groups of vertebrates with more than one-third of species being assessed as declining or threatened. Often, amphibian declines can be attributed to a suite of interacting factors, many of which are human in origin, but further information is needed to elaborate the key causes and to discover ways of reversing declines. Robust surveys provide vital ecological and biological data on amphibian populations, and underpin the decisions made to protect species and reverse their declines. Ongoing monitoring informs land managers and decision makers about whether they are taking the right action. This book is designed to help you carry out amphibian surveying and monitoring so that the results of your surveys can be used effectively. Part 1 introduces amphibians: order Anura (frogs and toads); Caudata (newts and salamanders); and order Gymnophonia (caecilians). Part 2 is essential reading before you start surveying. It introduces the different types of survey and monitoring programmes and discusses survey aims and resources. It contains chapters on collecting and handling survey data; survey permissions and licencing; health and safety, and biosecurity; and handling amphibians. Part 3 discusses everything you need to know during your survey, and provides a detailed look at amphibian survey methods. Part 4 covers presenting and using your survey’s data to best effect. A useful resources section is also provided, with example survey forms and details of additional information resources that will optimize the impacts of your surveys. Key amphibian survey techniques are discussed with reference to published examples of successful surveys – so you’ll be able to choose what’s right for your situation. Tips on optimizing your survey effort and handling amphibians in the field are also included. Whether carrying out a student expedition project or seeking information to support the management of a protected area, this book contains essential advice from an amphibian ecologist who has encountered the same sorts of decisions you’ll face when planning your surveys.
