About this book

The Western Ghats of the India are one of the global hotspots for amphibian diversity. Out of 181 species recorded from this region, 159 are endemic. This high level of endemism is attributed to its unique geography, bioclimatic conditions and past biogeographic events. The continued discovery of new species from this hotspot highlights the global importance of the Western Ghats in amphibian diversity and conservation. The current volume provides an overview of distribution of 159 endemic amphibians of the Western Ghats. Each species is briefly described with photograph, colour distribution map and current IUCN status. The aim of Altas of Endemic Amphibians of Western Ghats is to provide an overview of amphibian diversity of the Western Ghats and highlight information gaps in distribution.
