The Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) is pleased to announce a call for chapter submissions for a forthcoming publication. Dr. Muhammad Rais, an ASA Future Leader of Amphibian Conservation, is joining forces with Dr. Amäel Borzee, Co-Chair of the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group, to edit a book provisionally titled “Recent Trends and Challenges in Amphibian Conservation,” set to be published by Springer.

At a time when amphibian populations worldwide are experiencing drastic declines, this publication seeks to highlight the latest research, conservation strategies, policy initiatives, and technological innovations that are shaping the field. The editors are calling upon professionals who can provide comprehensive chapters that will serve as a valuable resource for the broader conservation and scientific communities.

The book will encompass a range of topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Case studies of successful conservation efforts
  • Advances in amphibian research methodologies
  • Policy and legislation effectiveness in amphibian conservation
  • Strategies for habitat restoration and species management
  • Overcoming the compound threats of climate change, disease, and habitat fragmentation

Interested individuals are invited to submit their preliminary interest through this google form by the deadline of March 30th, 2024. For further inquiries or detailed information regarding the submission process, please contact Dr. Rais at [email protected].

This volume represents a concerted effort to document the current state of amphibian conservation and to pave the way for future endeavors. We encourage the submission of chapters that reflect the depth and breadth of ongoing work in this critical area of conservation.
