Xenopus is a genus of African clawed frogs. Despite their occurrence in such diverse habitats as rainforests, lowland swamps, and alpine lakes--and their widespread use in laboratory research--the biology of these animals in their natural environments has never been reviewed. This volume provides the first comprehensive account of the taxonomy, ecology, behaviour, genetics, immunology, sensory physiology, and evolution of this group, with contributions from leading researchers in these fields.
