With the growing application of DNA-sequence and other genetic data since the 1990s, osteological work has largely given way to molecular approaches in the study of amphibian biodiversity. Many influential works from the mid-20th century (e. g., Francis, 1934; Tihen, 1958; Hansen and Tanner, 1958; Wake, 1963; Özeti and Wake, 1969) are still cited today, but few such works are produced anew by contemporary biologists. However, as an independent source of data, osteological characters can provide… CONTINUE READING
