A number of people contributed to the website by critically evaluating the species accounts, distribution maps and other sections. For volunteering their expertise, we wish to thank the following: Francis Cook, Fred Schueler.
We also thank the herpetologists of Canada for their encouragement,
input, and for their research on which this website is based.
Without the work of these dedicated scientists and naturalists our
understanding of these wonderful creatures would be woefully
Most of the photographs used in this website are from Amphibians
in Decline: Canadian Studies of a Global Problem. We thank the
Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles for access to
digital copies of these photographs and David Green for assistance
in contacting the photographers.
We also thank the herpetologists of Canada for their encouragement, input, and for their research on which this website is based. Without the work of these dedicated scientists and naturalists our understanding of these wonderful creatures would be woefully lacking.
