Here we studied the temporal breeding patterns and strategies of anuran assemblages in the Mediterranean region over five consecutive years. We collected monthly data on the number of clutches, tadpoles and metamorphic presence of six species in 98 ponds. The data showed a great seasonal temporal segregation of species. The breeding peak of those in permanent ponds was related to temperature whereas for temporary pond breeders rainfall pulses determined reproductive success. Many species showed… CONTINUE READING
