White Atrazine and it's effects are not disputed, there are many more issues affecting frog populations than just this issue. The links between rapid declining frog numbers and Atrazine is not so well established. Other pollutants in the environment, damage to waterway ecosystems and climate change are having a vastly larger effect.

Perhaps true Lucas, but when you consider there are 18,000 other registered pesticides in the USA, you can imagine the overall threat from pesticides that amphibians face.

But Lucas, the use of atrazine still on Tasmanian forest plantations must be contributing much to waterway ecosystem damage in Tasmania.

I know for a fact that we are killing the frogs and Bats as well. We used to have migrations of them and now nonel. Nonel. But you can't tell these silly basturds anything. They think we are crazy. And they will untill it's to late.

Frogs are themselves natures original and natural "pesticides! So, let them flourish, for goodness sake!

I mispoke below...I was referring to the stuff in Roundup, which is doing the same. Lots of evidence available....here's one: http://rense.com/general67/mons.htm.

If it affects frogs in these adverse ways, think what the chemical is doing to humans. Our House of Reps. should include pesticides in the budget cuts...in fact, it should be priority.

I read about this a couple of years ago, and have mentioned it to all my friends (much to their chagrin) Yet, as I walk down the aisles of home improvement stores, both sides are still crammed with these products, there is no real 'hit-on-the-head' warning. Where is the EPA in all this?

We don't own the Earth. Yet people are effectively dumping poison into the Earth's soil. Doesn't seem right. But people need to be made aware of what they're doing and private companies need to find safe alternatives to harmful pesticides. More government regulation, rules and laws will just make everything worse for all of us.

We need to get rid of pesticides all together, there are other ways to deal with this problem. WHAT A SHAME!
