Special Feature: Amphibians
The worrying declines in amphibian species globally have been widely reported in the popular and scientific media. As well as the ethical dimension of extinctions, the declines may have significant implications for ecosystems functioning and services and conservation planning. In this special feature we present a round-up of some recent amphibian science, policy and conservation action. Over the next few weeks we will run a series of posts on the topics below. We recognize these represent only part of the amphibian issue and so would welcome guest posts or suggestions for other topics that we should cover.
