The wood frog (Rana sylvatica), a temperate-zone anuran that overwinters within the frost zone, is adapted to tolerate the freezing and thawing of its tissues. Because the effects of freezing on complex neurobehavioral function are unknown and because R. sylvatica encounters subfreezing temperatures during its late-winter breeding season, we investigated the reproductive behaviors and physiology of male frogs after freezing (minimum body temperature, -2 degrees C) and postthaw recovery (4… CONTINUE READING
