Anuran amphibians have emerged as model vertebrates for the study of kin recognition mechanisms . Larvae of most species reported to date discriminate between kin and non-kin, but anuran kin recognition systems show substantial interspecific variability . The ability to discriminate between kin and non-kin incorporates some form of learning in most, if not all, anuran species studied . Kin recognize one another through chemical cues which may incorporate environmental, genetic and maternal… CONTINUE READING
