Malformed frogs : the collapse of aquatic ecosystems by Michael J Lannoo( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The widespread appearance of frogs with deformed bodies has generated much press coverage over the past decade. Frogs with extra limbs or digits, missing limbs or digits, or misaligned appendages raise an alarming question: Are deformed humans next? Taking a fresh look at this disturbing environmental problem, this reference provides a balanced overview of the science behind the malformed frog phenomenon. Bringing together data from ecology, parasitology, and other disciplines, Michael Lannoo considers the possible causes of these deformities, tells which frogs have been affected, and addresses questions about what these malformations might mean to human populations. Featuring high-quality radiographic images, Malformed Frogs suggests that our focus should be on finding practical solutions, a key component of which will be controlling chemical, nutrient, and pesticide runoff into wetlands."--Jacket

Leopold's shack and Ricketts's lab : the emergence of environmentalism by Michael J Lannoo( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aldo Leopold and Ed Ricketts are giants in the history of environmental awareness. They were born ten years and only about 200 miles apart and died within weeks of each other in 1948. Yet they never met and they didn't read each other's work. This illuminating book reveals the full extent of their profound and parallel influence both on science and our perception of natural world today.-publisher description
Okoboji wetlands : a lesson in natural history by Michael J Lannoo( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lake Okoboji in northwest Iowa is the jewel of the Iowa Great Lakes. A region of wetlands formed by prairie potholes, the area is rich with lakes, sloughs, fens, creeks, prairies, and kettleholes - providing homes for myriad birds, fish, amphibians, and other animals as well as recreation opportunities for hunters, fishers, boaters, hikers, and naturalists. In this readable, well-researched, and beautifully illustrated volume, Michael Lannoo presents an extensive natural history of Okoboji and its cherished wetlands that examines the world of our grandparents, compares it to today's world, and extrapolates to the world of our grandchildren. By highlighting wetland animals, especially the salamanders, toads, and frogs that thrive there, he promotes Okoboji's ecosystems as symbols of the worldwide crisis of pollution, declining biodiversity, and habitat mismanagement. Cautiously optimistic, he suggests directions for wetland management intended to preserve and restore this fragile area
North American amphibians : distribution and diversity by David Martin Green( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some 300 species of amphibians inhabit North America. This volume reflects the enormous growth in interest about amphibians and the increased intensity of scientific research into their fascinating biology and continent-wide distribution that has occurred during the past two decades. This atlas presents the spectacular diversity of North American amphibians in a geographic context. It covers all formally recognized amphibian species found in the U.S. and Canada, many of which are endangered or threatened with extinction. Maps and accounts of each species provide current information about distribution, habitat and conservation. Researchers, professional herpetologists, and interested readers will value this volume as a guide and reference. Designed for portability, North American Amphibians features complete distribution maps and color photographs."--

The Iowa Lakeside Laboratory : a century of discovering the nature of nature by Michael J Lannoo( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine a place dedicated to the long-term study of nature in nature, a permanent biological field station, a teaching and research laboratory that promotes complete immersion in the natural world. Lakeside Laboratory, founded on the shore of Lake Okoboji in northwestern Iowa in 1909, is just such a place. In this remarkable and insightful book, Michael Lannoo sets the story of Lakeside Lab within the larger story of the primacy of fieldwork, the emergence of conservation biology, and the ability of field stations to address such growing problems as pollution, disease, habitat loss

Status and conservation of midwestern amphibians by Michael J Lannoo( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1990 an international group of biologists, meeting to discuss rumors of declines in the number of amphibians, discovered that amphibian disappearances once thought to be a local problem were not & mdash;the problem was global. And, even more disturbing, amphibians were disappearing not just from areas settled by humans but from regions of the world once believed to be pristine. Under the mantle of the Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force, this timely book addresses three fundamental questions for the midwestern United States: are amphibians declining; if so, why; and, if so, wha
