Twenty Years of Service by AmphibiaWeb— Since its official launching in February 2000, AmphibiaWeb has aimed to serve the community of amphibian biologists by providing up-to-date information concerning the relationships, identity, distribution and conservation status of all of the World’s amphibians. Key to the success of AmphibiaWeb has been the sustained support of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, especially its curatorial staff (at present Associate Director Michelle Koo and Senior Associates Carol Spencer and Rebecca Tarvin). Associate Director and Co-Founder Vance Vredenburg has been with AmphibiaWeb since its very inception. We have benefited from our close associations with international partners like Santiago Ron of BioWeb Ecuador through its Anfibios del Ecuador, Jing Che who runs AmphibiaChina 中国两栖类, and Alexander Haas and Indraneil Das of Frogs of Borneo. AmphibiaWeb looks forward to continuing its record of service for amphibians and their well-being.
