Status of Conservation and Decline of Amphibians



Amphibians are among the most threatened groups of animals on earth. In part due to their highly permeable skin, amphibians are highly sensitive to environmental changes and pollution and provide an early-warning system of deteriorating environmental conditions. The more we learn about the impact of environmental changes on amphibians, the better we as humans will be able to arrest their demise, and our own.

Status of Conservation and Decline of Amphibians brings together the current knowledge on the status of the unique frogs of Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific. Although geographically proximate, each region presents unique challenges and opportunities in amphibian research and conservation. This book contributes to an understanding of the current conservation status of the amphibians of each region, aims to stimulate research into halting amphibian declines, and provides a better foundation for making conservation decisions. It is an invaluable reference for environmental and governmental agencies, researchers, policy-makers involved with biodiversity conservation, and the interested public.


  • Contains expert analysis of the conservation status of frogs in different regions within Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands as well as the threats they face
  • Provides recommendations for future monitoring, research and legislation and a benchmark against which future threats can be assessed and effectiveness of conservation measures evaluated
  • This book is Volume 11 (Status of Conservation and Decline of Amphibians: Eastern Hemisphere), Part 6 (Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Islands) of the Amphibian Biology series
