Abstract

There are 20 species of amphibians in Croatia, which makes our country one of the most biodiverse european countries when it comes to amphibians. Reasons for amphibians endangerment in Croatia, as well as around the world, are numerous. Main reason is habitat ravage by clearing and draining which makes them unsuitable for amphibians to inhabit. By interventions like this habitats are also being spatially separated which prevents normal moving of amphibian populations between habitats (this is especially important during mating cycle). Although amphibians are terrestric animals their life is related to water, especially due to mating. It is almost never one of indicated reasons that endanger amphibian populations; normally cumulative effect of at least several factors leads to endangerment, which has fatal effect on survival of amphibians. All amphibian species in Croatia are placed in one of protection categories. In this work a short review of biology of amphibians species in Croatia and their range is given.
