Tracing the Source of the Non-Native Philippine Population of the Greenhouse Frog Eleutherodactylus planirostris (Cope, 1862) through DNA Barcodes

DNA barcoding indicates that E. planirostris samples in the Philippines are identical genetically to populations in Hawai’i and Florida, USA and are closely related to an individual from Matanzas, Cuba, which supports the Cuban origin of Philippine samples.

Food Habits and Helminth Parasites of Skittering Frog (Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis) in the Lower Dir, Pakistan

The results emphasize the significance of further expected studies in the Dir Lower to get a good understanding of the helminth parasites with the ecological relations of their hosts.

Status and Distribution of Alien Invasive Frogs in the Philippines

The status and distribution of alien invasive frogs known in the Philippines is reviewed and updated ecological information on each species is summarized and it is suggested that H. chinensis is a potentially harmful invasive species.

Diet Composition of Six Anuran Species (Amphibia: Anura) in Terminalia Forest, Mindanao Island, Philippines

The recovery of food items that serve as bioindicators for water quality suggest that the water quality in the area was good, which strongly supports the protection of the area for conservation of both anurans and their prey.

Diet of seven anuran species (Amphibia: Anura) in Agusan Marsh, Mindanao, Philippines

The results indicate that anurans that are specialist feeders need to be monitored especially the vulnerable R. appendiculatus because any alteration of the habitat can affect the animals particularly the invertebrate prey of this threatened frog.

Species distribution and abundance of amphibians in two vegetation types of Agusan Marsh, Philippines.

Agusan Marsh is the 1009 RAMSAR site, a wildlife sanctuary which harbour unique and pristine faunal species. It is considered one of the most ecologically significant wetland ecosystems in the

Invasive alien species ( IAS ) : Concerns and status in the Philippines

The Philippines consists of about 7,107 islands with a total land area of approximately 30 million hectares, with human population estimate of more than 80 million. The country is characterized by an

The amphibians and reptiles of Mindanao Island, southern Philippines, II: the herpetofauna of northeast Mindanao and adjacent islands

It is suggested that the greater Mindanao faunal region possesses distinct subcenters of amphibian and reptile species diversity, and that until this area is revisited and its fauna is studied, the understanding of the diversity and conservation status of southern Philippine herpetological fauna will remain incomplete.

Diet of the Cane Toad in Different Vegetation Covers in the Productive Systems of the Colombian Coffee Region

The diet of the native cane toad, Rhinela marina, in the coffee production region of Colombia is described, which finds a high incidence of plant material, nematodes, and minerals in the gastrointestinal contents.

Food selection strategy during the reproductive period in three syntopic hylid species from a subtropical wetland of north-east Argentina

The analyses showed a marked specialization towards Diptera prey in Dendropsophus species, particularly in D. sanborni, and a more generalist habit in L. limellum, hence the coexistence mechanism during the reproductive period should not be related to competition processes for food resources.

Effect of landscape context on anuran communities in breeding ponds in the National Capital Region, Canada

Land cover change, predominantly habitat conversion to agricultural use and urbanization, has recently been recognized as the primary cause of biodiversity loss in terrestrial ecosystems. We

Effects of Landscape Composition and Wetland Fragmentation on Frog and Toad Abundance and Species Richness in Iowa and Wisconsin, U.S.A.

Abstract: Management of amphibian populations to reverse recent declines will require defining high‐quality habitat for individual species or groups of species, followed by efforts to retain or
