AMPHIBIAWEB

How to dynamically retrieve an AmphibiaWeb XML species account

1) Create a URL. This example is for Agalychnis callidryas, for use by EOL.

http://amphibiaweb.org/cgi/amphib_ws?where-genus=Agalychnis&where-species=callidryas&src=eol

2) The above URL will retrieve an XML file, which you can reformat for display on another web site. The fields included can be seen in any of the examples below.

Examples:

Agalychnis callidryas
Bufo canorus
Desmognathus quadramaculatus
Eleutherodactylus adelus
Oedipina gracilis
Phrynomantis bifasciatus
Pristimantis stegolepis
