Limnodynastes peronii was observed to successfully breed in small urban impoundments. Fecundity, egg viability and hatching success varied significantly, spatially and temporally. The predominant influence on breeding success was therefore deduced to be environmental. In contrast, growth varied more within populations than over time or between waterbodies and the observed results were considered to reflect genetic, rather than environmental, differences. Abnormalities were also hypothesised to reflect genetic differences and not environmental conditions.
