Default Eco-engineering hope for amphibians

"An international team of researchers have tabled a range of engineering ideas that could help protect amphibians from future climate change. The animals are particularly vulnerable to changes to habitat and temperature ranges, with many species also having a very limited distribution. The scientists plan to test their ideas to see which ones are the most suitable and cost effective.
One of the possible solutions was to create "micro-habitat shelters". For example, this could included forestry operators leaving a pile of dead wood, rather than clearing an entire area, so it offered protection to amphibians from drying out and temperature stress."
