South Africa, particularly the eastern part of the country, is home to a spectacular diversity of frogs (order Anura). However, the very survival of many species is in danger due to various factors causing habitat loss. Ensuring a Future for South Africa's Frogs represents the outcomes of a reassessment of all threatened species – roughly a third of all South African frogs. Strategic research priorities regarding taxonomy, conservation, monitoring and public awareness are extensively covered and guidelines for all future amphibian studies are established. Appendix 1 provides an update of the Red List with IUCN criteria for all reassessed amphibians. The species accounts are illustrated with maps and images and contain detailed information on every species' geographic range, population, habitat, ecology as well as current and historical Red List status. Further information includes notes on conservation actions currently in place and major threats to their survival. Ensuring a Future for South Africa's Frogs is a must-have for all conservationists, policy makers and amphibian or natural history enthusiasts.
