An image from work in our recent paper was selected as the cover of Diversity and Distributions – giving some much needed publicity to some of the beautiful amphibians and threatened forests that we research. This image is Afrixalus sylvaticus, listed as vulnerable on the IUCN red list and found in the Shimba hills of Kenya and forest patches of coastal Tanzania. Thanks to my colleague Beryl Akoth Bwong (now at National Museums of Kenya) for providing the nice photograph!
