Taken together, these suggest that adaptive radiations may be frequently encountered among clades of living amphibians. Recent summaries (i.e., Glor ; Losos and Mahler ) focus on a single case of nonadaptive radiation in the salamander genus Plethodon (Kozak et al. ), but in fact another salamander clade is a celebrated example Cited by:

adaptive in terms of reproductive efficiency and success.. However the adaptive significance of premating isolation is manifest only in situations where selection acts against individuals which mdsmate. Hence isolation between interacting taxa dependent solely on isolating mechanisms is 1.c:nttou3 and. likely to break down.   The antipredator behavior of anuran amphibians serves as an example. For a toad, the decision to search for food in the presence of a predator (snake) increases the likelihood that it will be captured and eaten (Heinen, ).Cited by:

One important difference in metabolic properties among anuran taxa may be exemplified by the work of Bennett and Licht,Bennett and Licht, ). They compared toads (Bufo boreas), ranids (R. pipiens) and tree-frogs (Hyla regilla). Toads are characterized by sustained locomotion, rely on skin toxins for defense, with limited ability to flee from by: Intraspecific Relationships between Resting and Activity Metabolism in Anuran Amphibians: Influence of Ecology and Behavior Article in Physiological and Biochemical Zoology 77(2) March.

There are differences in the water metabolism between frogs and toads, but these are such as the rate of uptake of water, hormonal, and behavior.

From the generalized mode of aquatic eggs and aquatic larvae many specialized modes have evolved. Some of these modes have evolved independently in unrelated lineages, whereas others are known only in one by: Studies of exercise physiology of anuran amphibians have led to the suggestion that there is a dichotomy between species that depend upon movement to.

Some freshwater organisms, like amphibians, may be able to adapt and persist in salt-contaminated wetlands by developing salt tolerance.

Yet adaptive responses may be more challenging for organisms with complex life histories, because the same environmental stressor can require Cited by: Conclusions Collectively, our data suggest that some species of anuran amphibians have divergent and adaptive responses to salt exposure across populations and across different life stages.

Despite the abundance and diversity of these animals, many aspects of the biology of amphibians remain unstudied or misunderstood. The Ecology and Behavior of Amphibians aims to fill this gap in the literature on this remarkable taxon.5/5(4).
