Response to Comment on "Status and Trends of Amphibian Declines and Extinctions Worldwide"
TLDR
The first global assessment of amphibians provides new context for the well-publicized phenomenon of amphibian declines and shows declines are nonrandom in terms of species' ecological preferences, geographic ranges, and taxonomic associations and are most prevalent among Neotropical montane, stream-associated species.

Widespread amphibian extinctions from epidemic disease driven by global warming
TLDR
It is shown that a recent mass extinction associated with pathogen outbreaks is tied to global warming, and it is proposed that temperatures at many highland localities are shifting towards the growth optimum of Batrachochytrium, thus encouraging outbreaks. Expand
Neotropical Birds: Ecology and Conservation
TLDR
The complete edition of this ebook in PDF, DjVu, doc, ePub, txt formats, and the reading by Douglas F. Parker III is presented. Expand
The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
TLDR
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Expand
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
TLDR
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups. Expand
The conservation status of the world's reptiles
TLDR
The results provide the first analysis of the global conservation status and distribution patterns of reptiles and the threats affecting them, highlighting conservation priorities and knowledge gaps which need to be addressed urgently to ensure the continued survival of the world’s reptiles. Expand
Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change
The effects of climate change on biodiversity are increasingly well documented, and many methods have been developed to assess species' vulnerability to climatic changes, both ongoing and projectedExpand
Threatened Amphibians of the World
TLDR
Threatened Amphibians of the World is a visual journey through the first-ever comprehensive assessment of the conservation status of the world's 6,000 known species of frogs, toads, salamanders, and caecilians. Expand
Population Declines and Priorities for Amphibian Conservation in Latin America
Abstract: Although dramatic amphibian population declines have been reported worldwide, our understanding of the extent of the declines in Latin America, where amphibian diversity is high, is limitedExpand
