This concluding chapter summarizes what we know and what future directions will help our understanding. It argues that greater phylogenetic breadth is required in future studies of amphibians, and that physiology is at the heart of any complete understanding of amphibian declines occurring worldwide. It concludes with a plea for collaboration and integration of different levels of biological organization in future studies.
