A bioindicator is an organism sensitive to environmental changes and, therefore, its absence or scarcity indicates that there is some factor that is modifying the normal conditions of the environment. Amphibians are excellent bioindicators for several reasons: they are sensitive to contaminants such as heavy metals or pesticides, being a good model...
