Salamanders: A Closer Look

A new study from Clemson University has found that the examination of the anatomy of the mudskipper fish and tiger salamanders may help explain why fins eventually evolved into limbs.

In Salamanders in Your Pocket: A Guide to Caudates of the Upper Midwest, Terry VanDeWalle provides a complete description of about twenty-five species of salamanders found in the Upper Midwest, as well as distinguishing characteristics for twenty-one subspecies. With stunning photographs by Suzanne L. Collins, this new guide is the perfect companion for outdoor expeditions in all kinds of moist environments. Look for Salamanders in Your Pocket to be released this fall as a Bur Oak guide.
