Standard reference for amphibians
1. Decision 11.167 regarding the nomenclature of CITES-listed species requires the Secretariat to make a print-out of the standard reference Amphibian Species of the World, by D.R. Frost, seven months before every second meeting of the Conference of the Parties, starting with the 12th meeting of the Conference of the Parties, and to submit the print-out for review and adoption by the Nomenclature Committee.
2. At its meeting of 8 April 2002 (San José, Costa Rica), the Nomenclature Committee accepted the print-out of Amphibian Species of the World by D.R. Frost as the standard reference for amphibians, valid as from the date of distribution of this Notification to the Parties. The pertinent pages regarding CITES-listed species of amphibians, the Amphibian Species Checklist, are provided in annex.
3. It should be noted that the layout of the website where the on-line version of Amphibian Species of the World can be found (http://research.amnh.org/herpetology/amphibia) looks different from the printed version adopted by the Nomenclature Committee. The content is however identical.
