Global amphibian declines : sorting the hypotheses

  title={Global amphibian declines : sorting the hypotheses},
  author={James P. Collins and Andrew Storfer},
Reports of malformed amphibians and global amphibian declines have led to public concern, particularly because amphibians are thought to be indicator species of overall environmental health. The topic also draws scientific attention because there is no obvious, simple answer to the question of what is causing amphibian declines? Complex interactions of several anthropogenic factors are probably at work, and understanding amphibian declines may thus serve as a model for understanding species… CONTINUE READING
