A recent study from U.S. Geological Survey researchers finds that frog, toad, and salamander populations are declining at a rapid rate throughout the country including in Florida.  The study, published in the scientific journal PLOS One, is a first-of-its kind estimate on the animals’ populations from around the country.  We’ll explore the findings and what they could indicate for future survivorship of many amphibian species.
