As part of the Amphibian Survival Alliance’s goal in providing our partners with access to the latest scientific guidance to inform amphibian conservation planning and action, we would like to direct your attention to the newly renamed Halliday Conservation Library which can be found at and

The reference lists have been compiled by Professor Phil Bishop (Amphibian Survival Alliance [ASA] Chief Scientist and IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group [ASG] Co-chair) and his Research Assistant (Steven Evans) at the University of Otago, New Zealand, in the same spirit as Professor Tim Halliday’s previous amphibian conservation lists.

This is a joint project funded by the ASG, the ASA and the University of Otago. The lists contain as many papers as could be found, with links to the abstracts and publications (some of which are Open Access), but if you find any that have been missed or have any questions, please contact the ASG:

We are confident that this will be a valuable and useful resource for your efforts, and we encourage you to regularly check out the library for newly published research (updated monthly).
