Beckenham,U.K: Croom Helm, Limited, 1983. Usual library marks. 163 pages with b/w illustrations. This frogs bizarre habit of rearing its young in its stomach and giving birth though its mouth is unique . The authors examined all aspects of the development, structure and physiology of this species, leading to the discovery of a prostaglandin released by the young whilst in the mothers stomach. The events of oral birth are recorded in dramatic photographs right up to the point when the young frog emerges spectacularly from its mothers mouth. The unique adaptations this frog has made are considered in the context of its ecology, of the anatomical and physiological changes associated with gastric brooding, and of its evolutionary significance. . Hard Cover. Good+/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Ex-Library.
