The 15th meeting of the African Amphibian Working Group celebrated the contributions of John Charles Poynton to African Herpetology. The meeting, in Trento, Italy, was timed to commemorate John's 81st birthday (in May 2012), and he presented a keynote speech that focused on a topic that has long fascinated him - the Afrotemperate amphibian fauna. His presentation is published here, in a modified form, for this special issue of (Poynton 2013). Other papers on the main themes of John's research are also included in this issue, which include biogeography (Loader et al. 2013; Schreiner et al. 2013), taxonomy (Cruz et al. 2013) and morphology (Wilkinson et al. 2013).
