The carbine barred frog (pictured) lives only in cool, high-elevation rain forests of the Carbine Tablelands, a region in northern Australia that is vulnerable to the effects of global warming, conservationists say.

The frog—among 13 new amphibians found in the country in the past decade—may lose its habitat by 2050, due to an intense temperature rise, University of Newcastle researchers warned in 2007.
