About this book

This year's volume of Basic & Applied Herpetology is dedicated entirely to publication of Part 2 of volume 11 of the book series Amphibian Biology. In 2013, the editors of this part, Stephen Busack and Harold Heatwole, posed to the editorial board of Basic & Applied Herpetology the challenge of publishing the Status of Conservation and Decline of Amphibians in North Africa. After a long process of editing and revision the editorial board are happy to present this treatise, organized in an introduction and six chapters, each chapter dedicated to a single North African country, including Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt, and written by some of the most relevant researchers in these countries.
