What is it about?
We identify spatial-temporal trends and information gaps in the amphibians that inhabit the páramo ecosystem, that must to be strengthened for effective conservation. We discuss the lack of comprehensive research, limited availability of data, and the importance of sharing information for conservation efforts.

Why is it important?
We highlight the lack of knowledge about amphibians in Colombia's páramos, despite their ecological significance. Páramos are home to unique and threatened amphibian species, but the available research is limited, and data sharing is insufficient. Proper understanding of these species' distribution, ecological needs, and threats is crucial for designing effective conservation strategies. The review stresses the importance of sharing raw data, collaboration among researchers, and the urgency of addressing this knowledge gap to ensure the survival of these amphibians and the overall health of páramo ecosystems.
