veel nieuwe soorten ontdekt in 2010
« Gepost op: januari 29, 2011, 09:56:38 am »

Citaat
In 1985, slightly more than 4,000 species of amphibians were recognized. Today AmphibiaWeb recognizes 6,789 species. The vast majority of those named since 1985 are new discoveries. In 2010, 206 species were added to the AmphibiaWeb database, the largest number added since 2005. Although most of these were tropical frogs, the total also includes 25 salamanders (mostly in the tropics) and 5 caecilians. The rate of increase in numbers of new species continues to be high (3.13% in 2010, a surprising 59% since 1985), with no indication that the rate of discovery and description is slowing.
