One of the most puzzling aspects of the worldwide decline of amphibians is their disappearance from within protected areas. Because these areas are ostensib ly undisturbed, habitat alterations are generally perceived as unlikely causes. The introduction of non-native fishes into protected areas,however, is a common practice throughout the world and may exert an important influence on amphibian distributions. We quantified the role of introduced fishes (several species of trout) in the decline… Expand
