    Although researchers have studied amphibians for many years, status assessments have been hampered by a lack of standards and protocols for inventory and monitoring. Heyer et al. (1994) and Olson et al. (1997) provide a foundation in their reviews of methods used for measuring and monitoring amphibian biodiversity. It is clear from these reviews that no single method effectively assesses all species and that more information is needed on the efficacy of approaches for surveying and monitoring amphibians in differing geographic regions and habitat types.
