... for consumption. We determined the effect of raising striped marsh frog ( Limnodynastes peronii ) tadpoles in isolation by comparing larval growth, size at metamorphosis and jumping distance at metamorphosis between full siblings raised in isolation, at low density and at high density. As expected, tadpoles...

... of the Bulahdelah sites on any given night. Calling and breeding was almost exclusively confined to natural or artificial ephemeral water bodies. Clutches are laid as floating rafts and embryoes hatch within 24 hours. Tadpole metamorphosis occurred in 40 days or less, or took over 100 days. Most calling sites occur...

Breeding was erratic over a 6-year period and only one major metamorphosis event was observed. It appears that bell frogs may have greater breeding...

.... This reintroduction released 850 tadpoles into a closed system of three ponds and rehabilitated habitat. Tadpole survival was high but following metamorphosis a decline in numbers began that continued for 13 months and resulted in the disappearance of all released bell frogs. The cause of this decline...

... detailed studies were made (Dankers, 1977; Humphries, 1979; Mac Nally, 1983). This finding leads to the suggestion that there is some advantage to breeding during this period.

... Toads are killed and consumed by a wide variety of invertebrate as well as vertebrate predators. Toxin content is high in toad eggs, but declines through the tadpole stage to a low level at metamorphosis, then increases again (Hayes et al. 2009). The life-history stages most at risk are those when toxin...
