Future climate change will severely reduce habitat suitability of the Critically Endangered Chinese giant salamander
Being the largest extant amphibian in the world, the IUCN Critically Endangered Chinese giant salamander Andrias davidianus is a charismatic species with great international public interest. WhileExpand
The Chinese giant salamander exemplifies the hidden extinction of cryptic species
Overexploitation, habitat destruction, human-driven climate change and disease spread are resulting in the extinction of innumerable species, with amphibians being hit harder than most other groupsExpand
Imminent extinction in the wild of the world’s largest amphibian
Species with large geographic ranges are considered resilient to global decline [1]. However, human pressures on biodiversity affect increasingly large areas, in particular across Asia, where marketExpand
Determining threatened species distributions in the face of limited data: Spatial conservation prioritization for the Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus)
Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine whether limited occurrence data for highly threatened species can provide useful spatial information to inform conservation. The study wasExpand
Phylogeographic patterns and conservation implications of the endangered Chinese giant salamander
Abstract Understanding genetic diversity patterns of endangered species is an important premise for biodiversity conservation. The critically endangered salamander Andrias davidianus, endemic toExpand
