Predicting future threats for global amphibian biodiversity
Date:11/16/2011

ased on just one threat are likely to be over-optimistic. "Our assessment shows that amphibian declines are likely to accelerate over the next decades, as multiple drivers of extinction could jeopardize their populations more than previous, mono-causal, assessments have suggested", says Carsten Rahbek from the University of Copenhagen. Walter Jetz (Yale University) concludes: "With more than 30 per cent of all amphibian species already listed as threatened by IUCN and many rare species still being discovered every year, our results highlight the need for greater conservation research and action for this highly threatened group."
