  • 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… CONTINUE READING
