KU Adds Hundreds of Photos to AmphibiaWeb

A significant new collection of photos has been added to AmphibiaWeb by the KU Biodiversity Institute's Herpetology scentists. Of the 559 photos contributed, 328 species were not previously represented by photos in AmphibiaWeb, and 108 are holotypes. AmphibiaWeb is an online system that provides access to information on amphibian declines, conservation, natural history and taxonomy. All copyrights are held by KU's Division of Herpetology.

AmphibiaWeb recognized Dave Blackburn, KU post-doctoral associate, for organizing the photo additions, Bill Duellman, curator emeritus, for contributing so many of his own photos, and curators Rafe Brown and Linda Trueb.
