Growth and development of larval green frogs (Rana clamitans) exposed to multiple doses of an insecticide

  title={Growth and development of larval green frogs (Rana clamitans) exposed to multiple doses of an insecticide},
  author={Michelle D. Boone and Christine M. Bridges and Betsie B. Rothermel},
Our objective was to determine how green frogs (Rana clamitans) are affected by multiple exposures to a sublethal level of the carbamate insecticide, carbaryl, in outdoor ponds. Tadpoles were added to 1,000-l ponds at a low or high density which were exposed to carbaryl 0, 1, 2, or 3 times. Length of the larval period, mass, developmental stage, tadpole survival, and proportion metamorphosed were used to determine treatment effects. The frequency of dosing affected the proportion of green frogs… CONTINUE READING
