[Extract] There are 544 amphibians currently recorded from the Australasian Realm, 69 (13%) of which are considered globally threatened or Extinct. This is much lower than the global average of 33%1. However, the number of DD species, 178 (33%), is much higher than the global average of 23%. As sufficient information becomes available to assess these species, it is expected that some of them will contribute to an increase in the percentage of threatened species in the region.
