This chapter focuses on studies that incorporate experimental evidence to address the amphibian population decline phenomenon. It discusses the major causes of global amphibian declines, such as climate changes, increasing levels of ultraviolet radiation, contaminants, pathogens, and introduced non-native species. It suggests that amphibian population declines are more likely due to multiple stressors, acting either independently or through complex interactions with each other.

Keywords:   amphibian population decline, climate changes, ultraviolet radiation, contaminants, pathogens, non-native species, multiple stressors
