Frogs live on every large landmass of the world except Antarctica and Greenland.

Frogs are most common in the warm, wet tropics, but they also live in hot deserts, cold alpine areas and variable coastal areas. Some Australian frogs that are very well adapted to life in dry deserts, and others that are adapted for life in wet or forested habitats.

Frogs play a key role in many food webs, both as predators and as prey. Frogs are sensitive to environmental change. At present, frog populations are declining all around the world. By observing frog populations, we can get a good indication of the condition of the environment.
