Plastic patterns in larval development of Endangered endemic Atelognathus patagonicus: implications for conservation strategies
The results highlight the importance of preserving a variety of wetlands, including both temporary and permanent ponds, to allow this species to continue to breed and develop in the face of current and potential anthropogenic disturbance, in particular that caused by the activity of local native pastoralists.
Relationship between morphotypes of Atelognathus patagonicus (Anura, Neobatrachia) and environmental conditions: evidence and possible explanation
It is believed that the change and subsequent reversal of the somatic features in these frogs are an opportunistic alternative showing remarkable plasticity of the species, which can thus inhabit both permanent and temporary ponds.
Seasonal trophic activity of the aquatic morphotype of Atelognathus patagonicus (Anura, Neobatrachia) and prey availability in the littoral benthos of a permanent pond in Argentinean Patagonia
The diet of the aquatic morphotype of Atelognathus patagonicus was studied in frogs collected from the Laguna Verde pond and there is a correspondence between the frogs' main food item and its presence in the benthos.
Feeding habits and their implications for the conservation of the endangered semiaquatic frog Atelognathus patagonicus (Anura, Neobatrachia) in a northwestern Patagonian pond
Data on the feeding habits of Atelognathus patagonicus in Laguna del Burro, in Neuquen Province is presented and conclusions about the design of conservation programs for the species are given.
First Neogene Proto-Caribbean pufferfish: new evidence for Tetraodontidae radiation
Abstract This study reports a three-dimensional fossil skull of a Tetraodontidae that dates to the middle Miocene (Serravallian), which was recovered from a rock matrix from the Valiente Peninsula
Habitat Associations for the Endangered Frog Atelognathus patagonicus Within the Aquatic Environment: Key Microhabitats for Conservation
—The Laguna Blanca Aquatic Frog, Atelognathus patagonicus (Batrachylidae), is an endangered species endemic to a system of endorheic (i.e., no outlet) ponds in northwest Argentine Patagonia and is
