Post Threatened Amphibians of the World by the Global Amphibian Assessment (GAA)

Hi everyone ,

Even though this was published back in 2008, I have had this for the past 2 weeks and have been reading steadily through it and I must say its the best reading I have had for a long time! I highly recommend people to download the various parts that make up this entire book, or even simply buying the book which ranges from £72 new or £232 used (who would spend more money on a used copy? lol) from Amazon.

Quote:
Amphibians are facing an extinction crisis, but getting to the facts has been difficult. "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. All 1,900 species known to be threatened with extinction are covered, including a description of threats to each species and an evaluation of conservation measures in place or needed. Each entry includes a photograph or illustration of the species where available, a distribution map, and detailed information on range, population and habitat and ecology. Introductory chapters present a detailed analysis of the results, complemented by a series of short essays written by many of the world's leading herpetologists. Appendices include annoted lists of lower risk species and a country-by-country listing of threatened amphibians.
The chapters/parts are the following;
  • Threatened Amphibians of the World - Introductory chapters
  • Extinct & Extinct in the Wild Amphibian Species - contains photographs of species.
  • Globally Threatened Amphibian Species (P1, P2, P3, P4 & P5 - Online version) - contains most photographs of species.
  • Near Threatened Amphibian Species & Acknowledgments - No photographs just information.

Here is 2 of 8 parts as an example - I have printed off all 8 parts and use them quite regularly!
Click the image to open in full size.


It covers most of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species categories from Near Threatened, Vulnerable, Endangered, Critically Endangered, Extinct in the Wild and finally Extinct species.
It is basically a Mini-paper form of the IUCN's online database giving detailed information on the following;
  • Geographic Range
  • Population
  • Habitat & Ecology
  • Major Threats
  • Conservation Measures
Here are two examples of the layout to the Book/Publication;



This is a example of the first part of the publication, "Extinct & Extinct in the Wild Amphibian Species" - This along with the other 5 parts to the publication have photographs of most of the animals but of course there are some species that still require exact photo-identification.
Click the image to open in full size.


This shows the last part "Near Threatened Amphibian Species & Acknowledgements" which has solely information and no photo-identification for any of the listed species (I took a photograph of part of the Caudata bit for you all lol). This part online says it is 153 pages long, however there are only 36 pages of listed species the rest are the Acknowledgements.
Click the image to open in full size.

From the Extinct and Extinct in the Wild Atelopus species all the way to the Near Threatened Tylototriton species, this Publication/Journal contains nearly 2,000 of species listed under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.


Anyway, here is the link - Threatened Amphibian Species of the World Online Publication - and here is the - Threatened Amphibian Species of the World Book/Amazon.com

If you're really into your Conservation and in particular Conservation of Amphibian species like I am, then you are bound to love this!

Thank you all for reading and enjoy.

Ooh, a very nice read. Though I was glad, the caudata section was a little short in comparison.

Yeah unfortunately the Caudata listed species is quite low but I am glad they listed the species they needed to talk about!
