A deadly disease is threatening to wipe out frogs and toads, a new report has shown.

The list, which is to be published on the World Environment Day (05 June), mentions the specific condition of each species.

Caracas – Venezuelan and Colombian scientists have identified a new species of frog in the Perija mountain range shared by both countries that is home to unusual species like this small amphibian.

As conditions warm, fish and wildlife living at the southern edge of their species' ranges are most at risk, according to Penn State researchers who led a major collaborative study of how wood frog

The 90% of the biodiversity related to the amphibian populations in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest -one of the most threatened tropical forests- is not a protected area yet, according to an article

A new species of Asian mountain toad belonging to the genus Ophryophryne has been discovered in the the Truong Son or Annamite mountains of Vietnam, an area of high diversity for the group.

A new glass frog species with transparent skin through which its beating heart is visible has been discovered by scientists who warn that the amphibian may already be at threat of extinction.

Genetic analysis of a spiny-throated reed frog hidden in museum collections has revealed it to be a new species. But recent surveys of its heavily deforested habitat have failed to find more.

A rare frog that had not been seen in decades has been found in Zimbabwe, researchers have said.

Determining location and timing of ontogenetic shifts in the habitat use of highly migratory species, along with possible intrapopulation variation in these shifts, is essential for understanding mechanisms driving alternate life histories and assessing overall population trends. Measuring variations in multi-year habitat-use patterns is especially difficult for remote oceanic species.
