Tadpoles are recognized as the larval forms of frogs in most parts of Africa. Despite this, they are rarely associated with the correct adults. Tadpoles are not well known, and one of the aims of this book is to demonstrate how interesting their morphology and ecology is, as well as to provide some assistance with identification. Although this book deals with tadpoles of sub-Saharan Africa, important literature that explains important features or functions, based on tadpoles from other countries, has been consulted.
