ABSTRACT
The disappearance of harlequin tree frogs in Central and South America has led scientists to make a definitive connection between global warming and extinction. In the past 25 years two-thirds of the 110 species of tree frogs have become extinct. Frogs are particularly sensitive to their environments. The fate of the harlequin tree frog is a sign of things to come if countries do not put a halt to pollution and global warming.
