Each species account begins with a genus page. Commonly used names, scientific names, the specific epithets and the vernacular names are included, meanings of which are explained for each poison frog species. Comprehensive in scope details are given regarding taxonomy, appearance during each phase of the life cycle, similar or confusing species, alkaloids known from that species, behaviors, calls and vocalizations, reproduction and diet. Distribution details are also provided along with current threats and IUCN Red List status.
