Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force (DAPTF)


The Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force (DAPTF) was established in 1991 by the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the World Conservation Union (IUCN). The DAPTF operates through a network of Working Groups like the California/Nevada Working Group. Over 80 of these Working Groups represent different regions of the world and collect geographical data on amphibian declines and their causes. Other, issue-based Working Groups are concerned with specific topics, including: Disease and Pathology, Monitoring Techniques, Chemical Contaminants, and Climatic and Atmospheric Change. Task Force members and other interested parties are kept up to date via the newsletter FROGLOG.
