An ecological study of the cricket frog, Acris crepitans
in Northeastern Kansas.
Twelve species were observed and recorded: Anayrus americanus, Anaxyrus fowleri, Acris crepitans
, Hyla chrysoscelis, Hyla cinerea, Hyla gratiosa, Psuedacris crucifer, Pseudacris feriarum, Gastrophryne carolinensis, Lithobates catesbeiana, Lithobates clamitans, and Lithobates sphenocephala.
Breeding in April is dominated by Hyla versicolor, Anaxyrus woodhousii, and Acris crepitans

Six species comprised 89% of the WVES observations: Acris crepitans
, Bufo fowleri, Hyla chrysoscelis, Pseudacris crucifer, Pseudacris feriarum, and Rana sphenocephala.
As part of exploration of a translocation of a population of Blanchard's cricket frogs, Acris crepitans
blanchardi, a Michigan Species of Special Concern, we surveyed populations in four locations in southeast Michigan from May to August 2004 and May to August 2005.

Hyla chrysocelis, Acris crepitans
, and Pseudacris triseriata were heard most frequently.
For two species, Acris crepitans
and Hemidactylum scutatum, least convex polygons could not be calculated because the species was represented by two populations or less.
Auditory tuning and call frequency predict population-based mating preferences in the cricket frog, Acris crepitans
was rare prior to the hurricane and was captured only in 2003 at one trap in floodplain hardwood forest.
