Amphibian Conservation Call for Evidence
The Conservation Evidence project at the University of Cambridge is focusing on amphibians this year. Conservation Evidence publishes a website, a journal and a series of books providing evidence to support decisions about nature conservation. We are currently developing a new synopsis of evidence on amphibian conservation funded by Synchronicity Earth. This involves listing all possible conservation interventions for amphibians, anywhere in the world, and compiling evidence for the effectiveness of each.
We Need Your Help
Have you written a paper or report describing the effects of a management intervention to conserve amphibians? Have you tried a novel technique for the conservation of an amphibian species? It could be anything from protecting, restoring or creating habitat to captive breeding and releases. If the intervention was directly tested and its effects monitored quantitatively, we would like to include your evidence in our synopsis. Please note, we focus entirely on how to protect or boost wild amphibian populations by intervening to restore natural processes or mitigate threats. We do not cover evidence about how species are changing or what is causing their decline.
Conservation Evidence has completed synopses of evidence on bird conservation and wild bee conservation. Another synopsis is almost complete for wildlife conservation in European farmland. These are available on our website www.conservationevidence.com in a searchable database of evidence.
We aim to complete the amphibian synopsis by June 2013. It will then be made available as a searchable database, a book and a free pdf.
Please contact Rebecca Smith email@example.com if:
- You have evidence of the effectiveness of conservation interventions for amphibians, or
- You would like an electronic copy of the amphibian synopsis once it is available.
