affecting California's declining amphibians, to be held at the Museum on 13

March 1997, 8:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M.  The workshop will address ecological forces

relevant to these animals' conservation, such as streambed erosion and

degradation, the introduction of the bullfrog, and governmental efforts

toward their conservation. Additional topics and speakers may be added.  A

reception immediately following the seminar will give ample opportunity for

questions and answers.

The San Diego Natural History Museum

The San Diego Natural History Museum is part of the Balboa Park museum

community. It was established by the San Diego Society of Natural History,

which was founded in 1874. The museum is accredited by the American

Association of Museums. The San Diego Natural History Museum is dedicated to

providing biological and geological expertise and education for southern

California and Baja California.

The SDNHM herpetology collection includes holdings of 68,000 reptile and

amphibian specimens, including 66 primary and secondary types. The most

important part of the collection is the range of over 8000 rattlesnakes

collected by Laurence Klauber, whose notes and library are also housed at

the Museum.

The SDNHM collections are part of the museum's Biodiversity Research Center

of the Californias, which supports the San Diego Natural History Museum's

mission by providing the scientific foundation for its operations and

programs. The BRCC seeks to fulfill this mission through the discovery ,

description, and understanding of the natural environment of the museum's

region and how that region is integrated with the wider world.
