AMPHIBIAWEB
This reference list is compiled by Professor Tim Halliday (formerly DAPTF International Director) (tim.r.halliday@gmail.com). It lists papers on amphibian declines and their causes and papers on amphibian conservation, with an emphasis on those that describe methods for monitoring and conserving amphibian populations. Tim is always delighted to receive details of forthcoming papers from their authors.
