A South American anuran (Phyllomedusa sauvagii) produced large amounts of semisolid urate when it was maintained on a diet of insects. Rates of evaporative water loss in Phyllomedusa sauvagii were only about 5 to 10 percent of those other anurans tested and were similar to those of lizards of comparable size.
INTRODUCTION .2~IPHIBIANS that frequent terrestrial habitats typically respond to dehydration by decreasing rates of urinary water loss and increasing the rate at which water can be t~ken up through the skin. These effects, known as the water-balance response, are thought to be mediated by a neurohypophyseal hormone similar to the antidiuretic hormones of… (More)
A technique obtaining a precise mapping of interactive effects in the pitch memory store is described. Subjects were required to compare two tones for pitch when these were separated by a 5-second interval during which six other tones were played. In the second serial position of the intervening sequence there was placed a tone whose pitch bore a critical… (More)
