    Raffael Ernst and colleagues at the Senckenberg Natural History Collections studied how abandoned forest roads in the rainforest of Central Guyana impact amphibian diversity. The study suggest that these roads serve as a sanctuary for amphibians during severe dry periods to enhance their survival and reproduction. For example, the water-filled potholes of roads act as spawning grounds. Researchers suggest these roads should not be disturbed as they are advantageous to amphibians during dry periods. However, this is not to encourage the establishment of new roads or restoring of old ones as there are different factors that should be considered for restoration initiatives. As a consequence of species ability to adapt to…

One of the effects is a reduction in the number of follicles in amphibians, which shows that agrochemicals have a negative impact on the reproduction system of female amphibians (Katti et al, 2015).
