Chapter Summary

The taxonomic inventory of the amphibians of Suriname started with the dawn of scientific nomenclature, since Linnaeus received many specimens from Suriname; of the 104 species of amphibians. Linnaeus is likely to have obtained Surinamese amphibian specimens from the collections of Dahlberg and Rolander. Surinamese biology students and others working on amphibians of Suriname have to gather their information and identify species with amphibian guides for French Guiana or have to invest a tremendous amount of time to investigate the scattered literature.A good knowledge of the amphibians of Suriname is not only important to help pure scientific investigations, but also to support biodiversity monitoring related to project development and climate change.
