Abstract: This brochure provides a quick and easy identification key to adult amphibians in northern B.C., with separate keys for salamanders and for frogs and toads. Nearly one third (32%) of the approximately5,750 amphibian species are at risk worldwide. The situation in British Columbia is equally bleak: 30% of the salamanders and 64% of the frogs and toads are listed as species of concern either federally, provincially, or both. Even common and widespread species such as the Western Toad and Columbia Spotted Frog are showing signs of decline in parts of the province. Northern B.C. is especially important for the conservation of amphibians as it is not under the same development pressures as southern regions. Northern areas may form strongholds for amphibians that are declining farther south. This role is expected to increase in importance in the face of climate change, as warmer and drier conditions in the south may result in northward range shifts for many amphibians.
