AmphibiaWeb is an online database of information related to amphibian biology and conservation.
The site has an uncluttered layout and colorful graphics.
An expandable, left-side menu provides quick access to the main areas of the site.
This large database grows daily. The goal of the site managers is to eventually provide information about every species of amphibian. The main database is fully searchable by genus, species, vernacular name, family, or order, and users can browse by scientific or vernacular name. The species accounts include descriptions, photos, life history, conservation status, and literature references. The photo and literature databases are also searchable. Resources offers quick access to information about amphibian decline, amphibian biology and taxonomy, and links to researchers' home pages.
