About this book

This volume assesses the status of amphibian decline in the western hemisphere.

Amphibians, by virtue of their thin, moist, permeable skins, are poorly protected from harsh environments and are especially susceptible to chemical changes, dessication and habitat alteration. They are particularly important to study as they serve as an early-warning system portending changes that may soon impinge upon more resistant species.
