Description: The pressures of growing borderland populations, increased land use, and Increased water use are threatening amphibians in the Chihuahuan Desert border area. In this paper, we describe potential direct threats such as loss or contamination of aquatic habitats, and indirect threats such as the sublethal effects of pesticides on developing larvae and tadpoles. More research is needed on amphibians of the Chihuahuan Desert region to develop guidelines for managing the natural resources of the region in ways that benefit both wildlife and humans.

Keywords: amphibians, land use, Chihuahuan Desert
