The Steering Committee above meets about once a week to review the latest in amphibian news, consider new partnerships, brainstorm ways to make the site more useful, address any controversies in the amphibian literature, and discuss how better AmphibiaWeb can address conservation issues facing amphibians in crisis.

    Help us build AmphibiaWeb!

    We have the ambitious goal of establishing a "home page" for every species of amphibian in the world. In order to accomplish this goal we encourage volunteers to help us prepare species accounts. If you have special interest in a particular species, please contact us and we will send you an electronic template for the species accounts. We also encourage submission of photographs and range maps. If you have a photograph that you can submit electronically, we would be pleased to receive it. Photographs that are most valuable are those that include exact locality information, including date and observer. Also please indicate museum number if voucher specimens exist. We will edit accounts and communicate with authors before putting the account onto the website. Thanks to all who are willing to help.
