The Halliday Conservation Library

3 September 2019

The reference lists below are compiled by Professor Phil Bishop and his Research Assistant (Steven Evans) at the University of Otago, New Zealand, in the same spirit and method as Professor Tim Halliday’s previous amphibian conservation lists. Thus we are happy to name this effort after Tim Halliday and hope it continues to be useful resource. This is a joint project funded by the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG), the Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) and the University of Otago. The lists contain as many papers as we could find with links to the abstracts and publications (some of which are Open Access), but if you find any we have missed, please let us know.

Currently, we are compiling topic-based bibliographies on Zotero. Check our group libraries below for papers on Bd & Bsal as well as new species descriptions. We are growing these efforts! Please let us know if you have any suggestions or would like to help manage.
Tip: Zotero group libraries can be added to a personal Zotero library through the desktop app. Use Tags to filter the list.

These monthly reference lists were compiled by Professor Tim Halliday (formerly the International Director of the Declining Amphibian Biology Task Force). They list papers on amphibian declines, their causes, and on amphibian conservation, with an emphasis on those that describe methods for monitoring and conserving amphibian populations. He discontinued his efforts in July 2018.
