About this book

Alarming accounts of disappearing and deformed amphibian populations have been making headline news with pictures of grotesque frogs and reports from scientists visiting once healthy ponds only to find them absent of amphibian life. Leading amphibian biologist Raymond D Semlitsch has assembled experts from around the world to explore how much of these stories are real and how much are media hype. He asks the question of whether valuable resources should be allocated to uncovering the reasons behind these abnormalities or whether they are simply natural aberrations. Is the loss of ozone a threat to amphibians globally or can depleted populations be explained by other factors? Causes that were once considered likely have now been revealed to be inadequate explanations. Semlitsch and his colleagues attempt to uncover the truth as they explore the amphibian crisis point by point.
