oa Madoqua - Review of Namibian anuran diversity
Namibia is the most arid country south of the Sahara, yet 45 species of anurans are known, and a further l5 are expected to be found there. The northern assemblage consists of highly water-dependent species in the Caprivi that originate from rich faunas in Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique and Zaire. The southern assemblage which is partially arid-adapted originates from the rich Namaqualand fauna as well as from the Orange River watershed.
