- Habitat of Origin and Changes in Water Chemistry Influence Development of Western Chorus Frogs. Gerlanc, Nicole M.; Kaufman, Glennis A. // Journal of Herpetology;Jun2005, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p254
A variety of biotic and abiotic variables have been shown to affect length of larval period and size of juveniles at metamorphosis in amphibians. However, influence of water quality on phenotypic plasticity of growth and development of tadpoles generally has received less attention. We examined...
- EFFECTS OF HYDROPERIOD DURATION ON SURVIVAL, DEVELOPMENTAL RATE, AND SIZE AT METAMORPHOSIS IN BOREAL CHORUS FROG TADPOLES (PSEUDACRIS MACULATA). AMBURGEY, STACI; FUNK, W. CHRIS; MURPHY, MELANIE; MUTHS, ERIN // Herpetologica;Dec2012, Vol. 68 Issue 4, p456
Understanding the relationship between climate-driven habitat conditions and survival is key to preserving biodiversity in the face of rapid climate change. Hydroperiod--the length of time water is in a wetland--is a critical limiting habitat variable for amphibians as larvae must metamorphose...
- It Might Get Loud. // Virginia Living;Apr2011, Vol. 9 Issue 3, p21
The article focuses on spring peepers which are tiny frogs regarded as the iconic harbingers of spring that peep in chorus to welcome the start of the season. Mike Hayslett, a resident naturalist, believes that these harbingers are telling people that they have survived another winter and the...
- Relative influence of weather and season on anuran calling activity. Steen, David A.; McClure, Christopher J.W.; Graham, Sean P. // Canadian Journal of Zoology;Jul2013, Vol. 91 Issue 7, p462
Drivers of anuran reproductive activity may include multiple and independent environmental variables. To determine the relative influence of season, temperature, and precipitation in initiating frog reproduction, we monitored a species-rich frog assemblage in south-central Alabama for 3 years...
- The importance of local and landscape-scale processes to the occupancy of wetlands by pond-breeding amphibians. Scherer, Rick; Muths, Erin; Noon, Barry // Population Ecology;Oct2012, Vol. 54 Issue 4, p487
Variation in the distribution and abundance of species across landscapes has traditionally been attributed to processes operating at fine spatial scales (i.e., environmental conditions at the scale of the sampling unit), but processes that operate across larger spatial scales such as seasonal...
- The effects of hydropattern and predator communities on amphibian occupancy. Amburgey, S.M.; Funk, W.C.; Bailey, L.L.; Murphy, M.; Muths, E. // Canadian Journal of Zoology;2014, Vol. 92 Issue 11, p927
Complex, interactive ecological constraints regulate species distributions, and understanding these factors is crucial for predicting species persistence. We used occupancy analysis, which corrects for imperfect detection, to test the importance of abiotic and biotic habitat and landscape...
- Out There. Galea, Steve // Ontario Out of Doors;Apr2010, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p18
The article offers information on the chorus frogs.
- Harbinger of Spring. // South Dakota Magazine;Mar/Apr2012, Vol. 27 Issue 6, p86
A photograph of South Dakota's tiniest frog, the boreal chorus frog, which croaks when spring is near is presented.
