    The article looks at facts about amphibians. Amphibians are cold-blooded animals that live part of their lives in water and part on land. They are divided into three main groups: salamanders, newts, and mudpuppies; caecilians; and frogs and toads. The skin of most amphibians is soft and...

    This section presents information on salamanders. In the great crawling forward of evolution, salamanders made the transition to land location and air breathing, but never completely abandoned the moisture factor they still require. Salamanders are secretive, private, nocturnal creatures who are...

    Information on reptiles and amphibians is presented. Reptiles and amphibians are vertebrates, which means they have backbones. Reptiles have been around for millions of years and once were the most common vertebrate animals on Earth. Today, they are divided into four main groups: turtles and...

    We examined within-pond oviposition site selection by two spring-breeding amphibians, the spotted salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) and the wood frog (Rana sylvatica), in two small ponds in central Ohio. Both species deposited their eggs in a non-random pattern within the ponds, ovipositing...

    Most toxicology studies focus on effects of contaminants during exposure. This is disconcerting because subsequent survival may be affected. For instance, contaminant-induced mortality can be later ameliorated by reduced competition among the survivors, a concept we refer to as...

    Effective monitoring of population size is critically important for endemic species with specialized habitat requirements so that timely remedial steps can be taken when declines are detected. We initiated a monitoring study of the endemic plethodontid salamander, Plethodon punctatus, which is...

    The reproductive characteristics of many tropical amphibian species are poorly known, and the populations of many of these species are in decline, they occur in a variety of habitats and microhabitats. We investigated the reproductive biology of a tropical salamander, Bolitoglossa paraensis, in...
