Amphibian populations have been declining worldwide over the last few decades due to causes like habitat modification, climate change, and emergent diseases. Hyla suweonensis, a treefrog species endemic to Korea, has disappeared from much of its historic distributional range. Past studies reported this species to breed exclusively in man-made rice paddies. This study reports the habitat characteristics of a seminatural site for H. suweonensis. Out of 100 sites where H. suweonensis was present… Expand
Defining Conservation Requirements for the Suweon Treefrog (Dryophytes suweonensis) Using Species Distribution Models
Numerous amphibian species are declining because of habitat loss and fragmentation due to urbanization of landscapes and the construction of roads. This is a mounting threat to species restricted toExpand
Translocation of an endangered endemic Korean treefrog Dryophytes suweonensis
Endangered species in heavily modified landscapes may be vulnerable to extinction if no conservation plan is implemented. The Suweon treefrog Dryophytes suweonensis is an endemic endangered speciesExpand
Distribution Change of Invasive American Bullfrogs (Lithobates catesbeianus) by Future Climate Threaten Endangered Suweon Treefrog (Hyla suweonensis) in South Korea
TLDR
This study modeled what environment the American Bullfrog settled in and how it could spread in the future and predicted changes in the potential distribution and future distribution based on climate change scenarios to analyze how those changes affect critically endangered Suwon treefrogs. Expand
Introduced bullfrogs are associated with increased Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis prevalence and reduced occurrence of Korean treefrogs
TLDR
The presence of L. catesbeianus can now be added to the list of factors responsible for the decline of D. suweonensis populations, and the endangered Dryophytes suwe onensis displays a significantly higher Bd prevalence than the more abundant D. japonicus. Expand
Preference for natural borders in rice paddies by two treefrog species
TLDR
This study investigated the preferred position, based on the advertisement calls for two treefrog species, in relation to different types of borders such as natural ditch, concrete ditch, one-lane dirt road and vegetation, and shows that treefrogs seem to avoid rice paddies with concrete ditches. Expand
Additional threat to Hynobius salamander eggs: predation by loaches (Misgurnus sp.) in agricultural wetlands
TLDR
Whether anthropogenic modification of wetlands leads to an additional threat to breeding Hynobius spp. Expand
Seoul, Keep Your Paddies! Implications for the Conservation of Hylid Species
TLDR
This study demonstrates that neither habitat diversity nor surface area, but solely the occurrence of aggregated rice paddies is a requisite for H. suweonensis occurrence in metropolitan Seoul, and it is emphasized that the management plans therein can, and should, be used as the first step in the conservation of this species. Expand
Impact of land reclamation and agricultural water regime on the distribution and conservation status of the endangered Dryophytes suweonensis
TLDR
A 120 km increase in the southernmost known distribution of the Suweon Treefrog and the absence of the species at lower latitudes are described, and a putative constriction on the species ancestral range due to urban encroachment is demonstrated. Expand
Breeding range variation between Korean hylids (Dryophytes sp.)
TLDR
Despite the absence of variation in the two species’ breeding range, there was a significant variation in mean average displacement, with D. japonicus moving more than D.suweonensis in the breeding range. Expand
Population trend inferred from aural surveys for calling anurans in Korea
TLDR
The population size was found to be decreasing between 2015 and 2017, with a significant decrease in the number of calling individuals at specific sites, and high rate of encroachment was the principal explanatory factor behind these marked negative peaks in population dynamics. Expand

Spatiotemporal distributions and habitat characteristics of the endangered treefrog, Hyla suweonensis, in relation to sympatric H. japonica
TLDR
The spatiotemporal distributions of the two treefrog species throughout the breeding seasons confirm that H. suweonensis is indeed rare and requires swift and decisive measures, including the establishment of protected areas. Expand

TLDR
The presumed low hybrid fertility of Eurasian treefrogs of the genus Hyla supports the specific status of H. japonica, which has often been treated as a subspecies ofH. Expand

Morphometrics of two sympatric species of tree frogs in Korea: a morphological key for the critically endangered Hyla suweonensis in relation to H. japonica
TLDR
The authors' morphometric analyses indicated that the two tree frog species differed significantly in means of all morphological characters, and in general, H. suweonensis was smaller and more slender than H. japonica. Expand

A Revised Phylogeny of Holarctic Treefrogs (Genus Hyla) Based on Nuclear and Mitochondrial DNA Sequences
TLDR
This study provides additional evidence for two separate colonizations of Hyla from the New World into Asia, and suggests an unusual biogeographic pattern in the Asian HylA clades. Expand
Metapopulation Dynamics and Amphibian Conservation
TLDR
Future efforts need to determine the mechanisms underlying patterns of abundance and distributional change and patterns in amphibian pop- ulations, and effective conservation strategies must successfully balance metapopulation with careful attention to local habitat quality. Expand
Mating Calls of Treefrogs (Genus Hyla) in the Far East, with Description of a New Species from Korea
TLDR
Acoustic characteristics of the Holoarctic hylids suggest that H. japonica, H. hallowelli and all European and western Asian species are related to, and probably derived from, the H. eximia group of North America. Expand
Genetic evidence for a high diversity and wide distribution of endemic strains of the pathogenic chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in wild Asian amphibians
TLDR
The results point to the presence of highly diversified endemic strains of Bd across Asian amphibian species, and highlight the need to consider possible complex interactions among native Bd lineages, Bd‐GPL and their associated amphibian hosts when assessing the spread and impact of BD‐G PL on worldwide amphibian populations.

No reproductive character displacement in male advertisement signals of Hyla japonica in relation to the sympatric H. suweonensis
TLDR
Although means of temporal and spectral characters were significantly different between the two species, sympatric populations of H. japonica and H. suweonensis overlapped in distributions of most characters, which implied either substantial gene flow or recent genetic isolation. Expand
