Published: 28 January 2014
...Matthew Greenlees; Michael Crossland; Richard Shine The viability of a metamorph anuran can be influenced by its body size and the time it has taken to complete larval development. In a laboratory experiment, we show that the presence of tadpoles of the invasive Cane Toad Rhinella marina causes...

...E. Meyer; K. A. Murray; H.B. Hines Intra-specific communication in anuran amphibians is primarily achieved with vocal signals (Duellman and Trueb 1994). However, some species also use visual displays for interand/ or intra-sexual communication (Hodl and Amezquita 2001). Such displays include...

...G. Madani ABSTRACT Australian anurans generally display little prey specialisation. Most data available of frog diet is limited to stomach content and faecal analysis with few direct observations of prey capture. Limited information is available on the diet of adult Giant Barred Frogs Mixophyes...
