Selected References (Amphibians)

  Listed below are several references that are useful for identifying amphibians.  Two references were utilized extensively in the preparation of these WebPages, Amphibians and Reptiles of the Pacific Northwest by R.A. Nussbaum, E.D. Brodie Jr., and R.M. Storm, and Amphibians of Washington and Oregon by W.P. Leonard, L.C. Jones, K.R. McAllister and R.M. Storm.   These texts provide a much deeper coverage than what is synthesized here and it is suggested that you refer to them in addition to your exploration of these WebPages.
