Crawfish Frogs have been called the most secretive frog in North America – an unusual moniker for a widespread anuran - inhabiting a third of the most scientifically advanced country in the world. The book tells the story of the biology of Crawfish Frogs, but also a story of the challenges faced during field work on an especially secretive and difficult to find our organism. And while the story of these burrow-dwelling frogs is extraordinary, the stories of the future scholars learning their craft in physically and emotionally demanding circumstances makes the story all the more exceptional.

Key Features:

  • Tells the story of an imperiled species and how to go about saving it
  • Brings science to life and makes it accessible 3) Emphasizes the work of graduate students Vividly describes the chaleenges of fieldwork
