Publications

Since the first comprehensive amphibian assessment was completed in 2004 the central coordinating team have published a number of reports, journal articles and most recently a book Threatened Amphibians of the World . Many of our collaborators have also made use of the data in their own publications.

We have tried to include as many of these publications as possible below, but if your publication using the amphibian data is missing from this list, please email us (redlist@iucn.org) and let us know so we can include it too. If you have a link or .PDF of the publication that we are able to include here that would also be great.
