We studied the effects of a pathogenic water mold, Saprolegnia ferax, on competitive interactions between the Cascades frog Rana cascadae and the Pacific treefrog Hyla regilla.
Although certain species (e.g., Rana cascadae, hereafter Rana) experience high mortality from these factors, other species (e.g., Hyla regilla, hereafter Hyla) appear unaffected (Kiesecker and Blaustein 1997).
pretiosa from 38 collecting localities and 24 specimens of Rana cascadae from six localities were examined [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 2 OMITTED] (Table 1).

Tadpoles of the Cascades frog (Rana cascadae) discriminate between kin and non-kin and preferentially associate with kin in aggregations in laboratory and field experiments (e.g., O'Hara and Blaustein 1981, Blaustein and O'Hara 1982, O'Hara and Blaustein 1985, Blaustein and O'Hara 1987).
