Species richness and abundance of Anurans
is higher outside than inside the mining area.
When on dry land, however, most anurans
are vulnerable to rapid water loss because their skin has exceptionally low resistance to water evaporation (Lillywhite, 2006).
We will first explore how a key and environment-dependent behavioural trait in amphibian anurans
Treefrogs (family Hylidae) are the most specious family of anurans
in Mexico with 96 described species (ParraOlea et al.
The one apparent exception to this is the Microhyloidea, a monophyletic group of frogs that has evolved distinct larval anatomies and exhibits relatively low levels of convergence in comparison to other anurans
(Roelants et al.
While many causative factors have been implicated in declines of anurans
in California, none are able to adequately account for population declines in backcountry areas removed from predominating anthropogenic impacts, except disease.
Oviposition sites and fish-deterrent mechanisms of two stream anurans
The BioBlitz detected 71-87% of species, except for anurans
(38%), which were best detected during call surveys during the traditional survey.
Seasonal variation in breeding activity of temperate-zone anurans
is strongly influenced by latitude.
The predators of Australian anurans
and their larvae are well documented (Tyler 1976, 1994, Littlejohn and Wainer 1978; Davies et al.
Due to lack of studies, inventories and biological studies are needed to fill gaps of information about anurans
diversity in South region of Brazil.
of Suriname) present an inventory of the Anurans
and Caecilians that comprise the northern South American country's fauna.
