By savethefrogs    In Nature    6 years ago
How long do frogs live? How many types of frogs are there? What's the difference between a frog and a toad? Why are frogs disappearing worldwide and what can be done to save them? SAVE THE FROGS Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger answers all these questions and more as he introduces the audience to The Wild World of Frogs. The presentation features many of Dr. Kriger's photos of amphibians from around the world, and there will be a question and answer session following the presentation.

Frogs From Around The World http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/138343/Frogs-From-Around-The-World
By savethefrogs    In Pets & Animals    7 years ago
Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world’s 6,418 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1980, and this is NOT normal: amphibians naturally go extinct at a rate of only about one species every 250 years!!! This slideshow is a compilation of photos by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder & Executive Director Dr. Kerry Kriger (with a few other photos thrown in). Please be sure to check out the SAVE THE FROGS! website: http://savethefrogs.com Want to download this presentation? Visit www.savethefrogs.com/teachers Enjoy!

The Mass Extinction of Frogs Worldwide http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/102559/The-Mass-Extinction-of-Frogs-Worldwide
By savethefrogs    In Pets & Animals    7 years ago
Frog populations worldwide have been declining at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world's 6,490 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Amphibians are faced with an onslaught of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. This powerpoint forms the basis of a lecture that SAVE THE FROGS! Founder & Executive Director Dr. Kerry Kriger has been giving throughout North America. http://savethefrogs.com/events

Chytrid Fungus and Frog Extinctions http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/102307/Chytrid-Fungus-and-Frog-Extinctions
By savethefrogs    In Pets & Animals    7 years ago
In terms of its effect on biodiversity, chytridiomycosis is quite possibly the worst disease in recorded history. First identified in 1998, this potentially lethal skin disease is caused by the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, which has been detected on at least 385 species of amphibians from 36 countries. Chytridiomycosis has caused amphibian population declines in Australia, South America, North America, Central America, New Zealand, Europe, and Africa, and is likely responsible for over 100 species extinctions since the 1970's. This slideshow, prepared by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger, details his research on the ecology of chytridiomycosis in eastern Australia. www.savethefrogs.com

qPCR Detection of the Chytrid Fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/102059/qPCR-Detection-of-the-Chytrid-Fungus-%28Batrachochytrium-dendrobatidis%29
By savethefrogs    In Science & Hi-Tech    7 years ago
http://savethefrogs.com/chytrid This presentation was developed as part of a free course offered by SAVE THE FROGS! and the Herpetological Circle of Panama. The course, entitled "Instruction and application of quantitative PCR molecular techniques for the study of amphibian epidemics", took place at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama City on October 5th-9th 2009, and was attended by 25 scientists from Panama, Colombia, and Costa Rica. Amphibian population in all three countries have experienced severe declines in numbers due to the chytrid fungus. This course was taught by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder & Executive Director Dr. Kerry Kriger, with the assistance of Vicky Flechas of Colombia's Universidad de Los Andes.
