INTRODUCTION

These proceedings represent the work of many people from diverse backgrounds and professions. While a good many contributors are professional herpetologists, a good many too, are not. When it was first suggested that the time might be ripe to provide a single forum for both scientists and non-scientists to publicly present on their favourite topic, frogs, Keith McDonald suggested the theme "Frogs in the Community" and I thank him for the title.

The symposium in February 1999 was itself an outstanding success with delegates from as far afield as Melbourne and the Atherton Tableland and many points in between. More than 160 people attended the two day meeting. These proceedings are the permanent record of the Frogs in the Community symposium and contain papers from both scientists, and community representatives. The scientific papers were subjected to the normal process of peer review ensuring technical accuracy. Community papers, which by their very nature do not lend themselves to peer review and would be spoilt by that process, were edited for clarity and style.

Many people have made both the symposium and these proceedings possible. Firstly I am particularly grateful to Dr Rosemary Murray who completed all the early stages of the editorial process and laid the foundations for the important review process. I thank Sybil Monteith, Eric Vanderdys, Robert Ashdown and Greg Czechura of the Queensland Museum as well as the Director of the Queensland Museum for the support and encouragement the symposium received. Eric Vanderdys arranged the very successful symposium schedule.      .......................
