About the book

Amphibians or cold vertebrates belong to the most threatened class of vertebrates constitute three major taxa namely Anurans, Caudales, and Caecilians. Many places of the works already facing higher risk Amphibian biodiversity loss emanating from climate change, disruption of the food chain, pollution, overexploitation, etc. Habitat loss with decline in species is also a major concern and needs urgent attention to address these problems. Understanding the causes of losses is hampered by inadequate knowledge of the Amphibian fauna. Keeping this pressing issue in mind, the present book was conceptualized to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of Amphibians ranging from faunal resource status, the effect of climate change, role in the ecological food chain, application as representative of bioindicator, conservation strategies as well as disease-causing organisms associated with Amphibians. I hope the readers of the book will surely benefit from the contributions shared by various scientists working in the field.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
