AmphibiaWeb is an app that gives you information about all amphibian species (frogs and toads, salamanders and newts, and caecilians), including pictures, sounds, and even range maps and specimen collection points. The app will find all amphibians around your current location, or, you can search for amphibians in any location around the world or simply by name. You can browse through the amphibians by name or image.
This app is based on data from AmphibiaWeb, an online system that provides access to information on amphibian declines, conservation, natural history, and taxonomy.
Range maps displayed derive from the IUCN Global Amphibian Assessment, 2010-2012.
An internet connection (wifi or cellular) is required.

What's New in Version 2.0.3
Fixed all known crashes and minor issues
Works on my iPad and itouch!
Since I use the website daily, this app allows me to quickly search and browse AmphibiaWeb content wherever I am. I prefer the app for listening to calls than the website version too since I often have my laptop muted. The improved maps are fast and very useful!
great! fixed issues
This version seems to fix all the issues noted in earlier reviews. Now you can also email the developer to suggest new features (about screen). The map can be set to view ranges or points or both.
Thanks to this app, i found out about amphibians that i didnt even know about in my area! Really good app. By the way, Berkley of California is a college that studies herpetology. Herpetology is the study of amphibians.
