A series of special reports by NSC Alliance takes an in depth look at scientists and institutions who are using scientific collections. The newest addition to the series, “Little Frog Faces Big Challenges: Herpetology Collection is Repository for Data on Rare Frog,” considers the fate of the Illinois chorus frog. The species’ decline has been documented through natural history collections. Download this report and others at http://nscalliance.org/?page_id=10.
