    In addition to animal model and environmental toxicology research, amphibians are extensively studied in the laboratory and the field. Research focuses on ecology, behavior, conservation, and evolutionary biology (Brown et al., ).This has become even more critically important as biologists strive to understand and address the worldwide decline of amphibian by: Its adherents, who worship Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, former Emperor of Ethiopia ( and ), as God incarnate, the Second Advent, are known as Rastafarians, or Rastas Reggae A music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late s.

In this paper, we speculate on how Neotropical anurans might respond to changes in climate predicted by Hulme and Viner (). We focus on two distinct groups of Neotropical anurans: frogs that live and oviposit in leaf litter and frogs that congregate at ponds to by:

The authors discuss the composition, distribution, natural history, biogeography, conservation status, and the future well being of the herpetofauna of the Mosquitia of Honduras.

This study provides a taxonomic key, morphological characterization, and drawings for the 22 known anuran tadpoles from the northwestern region of São Paulo state, southeastern Brazil.

Besides dispersal during juvenile and adult stages, tadpoles of pond-breeding anurans can be transported by floods caused by heavy rains, as described for tadpoles of the Malagasy arid-adapted.

Seventy-three species of amphibians and reptiles (six salamanders, 20 anurans, 20 lizards, and 27 snakes) are known from Parque Nacional Pico Bonito, Honduras. Only in 3 occasions out of 54 in this study, adults of D. pictus laid eggs in a pond when E.

The over- laps were examined in three different categories: anurans with anurans, anurans with non-anurans, and non-anurans with non-anurans. In spite of having lower niche breadths, anurans with anurans had the highest mean overlap (x = ± ).

whereas the anurans with non-anurans had the lowest (;f = + ); non-anurans with. Anurans were observed and collected in Santa Maria Municipality, state of Rio Grande do Norte in northeastern Brazil.

Fieldwork was conducted at night either after or during rains throughout the. After deposition of eggs or transportation of tadpoles, the female returns to the site and deposits eggs on which the tadpoles feed. Insofar as is known, tadpoles of some species are obligatorily oophagous (egg eating), whereas those of other species also feed on detritus or insect larvae, which may be present in the water in bromeliads or tree.

Phytotelm breeding has evolved at least three times in poison frogs (see Fig. ), and is characterized by the deposition of tadpoles in arboreal pools of water that collect in leaf axils (such as those of bromeliads, Heliconia, Xanthosoma, and Dieffenbachia), treeholes, bamboo stalks, palm fronds, fallen fruit husks, a nearly exhaustive list of patterns of parental care and tadpole Cited by: Full text of "Handbook of amphibians and reptiles of Kansas" See other formats.

tadpoles near the water surface which was away from the group. The spider landed the tadpole on a green leaf in a height of about 5 cm above the water surface (Fig.

The fossils of invertebrate chordates give additional support of amphioxus as the model for ancestral vertebrates (Holland et al., ).Haikouella, a million-year-old fossil found in Haikou, Yunnan province, China (Mallatt and Chen, ), is known for the anatomy of protochordate and vertebrate possesses the typical features of protochordate amphioxus, such as a notochord Author: Yuchao Feng, Jun Li, Anlong Xu.

However, we observed nests, egg masses, and/or tadpoles.Anurans exhibit plasticity in the timing of metamorphosis and tadpoles show phenotypic plasticity in age and size at metamorphosis as a response to temperature variation.

This developmental plasticity to changing thermal conditions is expected to be a primary factor that dictates the vulnerability of amphibians to increasing ambient Cited by: 6.
