Welcome

Since the year 2000, over 80 species of amphibians new to science have been discovered in the Eastern Arc Mountains . This biodiversity hotspot includes many amphibian species that are found nowhere else in the world. Exciting discoveries continue to be made as biodiversity surveys are conducted in ever more remote areas and as genetic analyses reveal surprising relationships among species. The goal of our project is to compile data on the distributions and natural history of Eastern Arc amphibians and to make this information readily accessible to students, researchers, nature guides, and tourists in the form of an inexpensive bilingual field guide. With support from Conservation International's Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund, the guide is tentatively scheduled to be completed by March 2009. Until the guide is published, this webpage will serve as a dynamic online field guide, attempting to keep pace with changes in taxonomy, new species discoveries, and improvements in distributional data.
