Skeletal and Dental Ontogeny in the Smooth Newt, Triturus vulgaris (Urodela: Salamandridae): Role of Thyroid Hormone in Its Regulation
As a whole, in the T. vulgaris ontogeny, TH-dependence is low at the early-larval stages, increases by the late-laraval stage, attains a peak at metamorphosis, and reduces to zero in postmetamorphosis.
A new species of the genus Oligodon Fitzinger, 1826 (Squamata: Colubridae) from coastal southern Vietnam.
A new species of the genus Oligodon from the coastal area of Binh Chau-Phuoc Buu Nature Reserve, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, southern Vietnam, is described. Oligodon arenarius sp. nov. is
Sorting out Moss Frogs: mtDNA Data on Taxonomic Diversity and Phylogenetic Relationships of the Indochinese Species of the Genus Theloderma (Anura, Rhacophoridae)
We discuss phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic diversity of the rhacophorid frogs of the genus Theloderma in sight of the novel phylogenetic data obtained from the Bayesian analysis of the up to
Rhacophorus vampyrus (Anura: Rhacophoridae) Reproductive Biology: A New Type of Oophagous Tadpole in Asian Treefrogs
The advanced form of parental care, including the maternal provisioning of unfertilized eggs, is reported for the first time for the genus Rhacophorus and is the second documented record for theRhacophoridae.
In O. fischeri, which has the largest eggs among hynobiids, the initial larval development appears to have been shifted into the embryonic period (embryonalization which is accompanied in amphibians by the reduction or loss of certain larval specific features).
A new species of Leptolalax (Anura: Megophryidae) from the western Langbian Plateau, southern Vietnam.
The male advertisement call of the new species is also unique among those Leptolalax species for which calls are known, with a single long 'introductory' note, followed by of 4-5 predominantly single-pulsed notes, and an average dominant frequency of 1.91-2.23 kHz.
Two new species of Kalophrynus Tschudi, 1838 (Anura: Microhylidae) from the Annamite mountains in southern Vietnam.
Two new mountain-dwelling microhylid species of the genus Kalophrynus from the southern part of the Annamite Mountains in Vietnam are described and larval morphology and bioacoustics of this species in relation to phytotelm breeding are described.
