The article presents information on a study on the amphibian fauna of Dudhwa National Park (DNP) located in Uttar Pradesh, India. The study found 17 species under 11 genera that belongs to 05 families and 10 species were first to be reported in the park. The study adopted both visual encounter as well as random-sampling methods.

    Habitat split is a major force behind the worldwide decline of amphibian populations, causing community change in richness and species composition. In fragmented landscapes, natural remnants, the terrestrial habitat of the adults, are frequently separated from streams, the aquatic habitat of the...
