This volume assesses the status of amphibian decline and extinction in Britain, Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal. Experts from each country contribute a chapter describing the ecological background and the conservation status of affected species, with an emphasis on native species. As well as infectious diseases and parasites (also covered in a general chapter), threats take the form of introduced and invasive species, pollution, destruction and alteration of habitat, and climate change. All these countries have monitoring schemes and conservation programmes, whose origins and activities are described. Recommendations for action are also made.
