A team of American and Ecuadorian scientists, working for the nonprofit organization Reptile and Amphibian Ecology International, has discovered an estimated 30 new species of rain frogs (genus Pristimantis) at a site in coastal Ecuador. Nearly half of the new species come from a small cloudforest patch on Cerro Pata de Pájaro. Cloudforests and surrounding rainforest usually contain high biodiversity and are under threat from both logging and climate change.
