IUCN/SSC Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force
The Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force (DAPTF) was established under the sponsorship of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC) around 1990. It is a volunteer collaborative group that focuses on the question of frog species survival. One of the functions of the DAPTF is to assemble all known references to inventory and monitoring efforts on amphibians on a worldwide scale.
This accession consists of correspondence, project files, meeting minutes, grant files, symposia records, daily logs, Board meeting materials and records documenting Board activities, and printouts of the DAPTF email list server. Most of the materials were created and maintained by W. Ronald Heyer, Board Chair, 1994-2000.
