This report deals with variations in mating call in a species group of narrowmouthed frogs (genus Microhyla) 2 and with the possible evolutionary significance of these variations. Anurans were studied because differences in mating call serve as important isolation mechanisms in these animals. The particular species complex was selected because it has populations which appear to be in intermediate stages of speciation. A western, xeric-adapted population that has been called Microhyla olivacea… Expand
Contact hybridization in the Crinia laevis complex (Anura : Leoptodactylidae)
TLDR
Results of reciprocal artificial hybridization tests between allopatric individuals of the two taxa showed that there was a high level of interfertility in both combinations, but with slightly reduced survival to metamorphosis. Expand
CALL DIFFERENTIATION IN A COMPLEX OF SEVEN SPECIES OF CRINIA (ANURA, LEPTODACTYLIDAE)
TLDR
Seven species of the Australian leptodactylid genus Crinia Tschudi appear to have the characteristics desirable for a study of the origin of differences in male call, and this isolating mechanism among the members of a closely related species group may be of interest. Expand
Analysis of Marine Hybridization between Two Species of the Genus Cyclograpsus (Crustacea : Brachyura) in South-eastern Australia
TLDR
The interaction between Cyclograpsus audouini and C. granulosus was ecologically controlled and that the two interacting taxa were separate species. Expand
Speciation within the Chorus Frog Pseudacris triseriata: Morphometric and Mating Call Analyses of the Boreal and Western Subspecies
TLDR
The data indicate that the two entities represent separate species and that the zone of overlap is much more extensive than previously depicted. Expand
Mating Call in the Speciation of Anuran Amphibians
TLDR
The evidence from the allopatric and sympatric species pairs is interpreted as indicating that speciation has occurred either through the evolution of effective isolation mechanisms under geographical isolation or through reinforcement of partially effective mechanisms after ranges have become sympatrics.

The impact of endoparasitic Wolbachia on the evolution of reproductive barriers during speciation in Drosophila ananassae from Southeast Asia and the South Pacific
TLDR
Wolbachia infections in populations of D. ananassae throughout its range in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific may have a significant influence on population divergence and speciation. Expand
Speciation in Chorus Frogs. I. Reproductive Character Displacement in the Pseudacris Nigrita Complex
TLDR
Analysis of mating calls of two cognate species of Pseudacris reveals divergence in two components, pulse rate and pulse number, which in at least one species seems best interpreted as reproductive character displacement. Expand
Rapid range expansion in the Great Plains narrow-mouthed toad (Gastrophryne olivacea) and a revised taxonomy for North American microhylids.
TLDR
These analyses suggest that G. olivacea rapidly expanded in effective population size and geographic range during the late Pleistocene or early Holocene, consistent with fossil data from northern localities and contemporary observations that suggest ongoing northern expansion. Expand
GEOGRAPHIC ISOLATION AND MATING CALL DIFFERENTIATION IN CRINIA SIGNIFERA
TLDR
The production of a distinctive mating call by males, and the specific positive response by females of the same species to the call, together act as important premating isolating mechanisms between sympatric species of anurans. Expand
VOCAL VARIATION IN TWO SPECIES OF CHORUS FROGS, PSEUDACRIS NIGRITA AND PSEUDACRIS CLARKI, IN TEXAS
TLDR
This paper is based on an analysis of the vocal variation of two sympatric species, Pseudacris clarki and P. nigrita, in Texas, with respect to environmental and genetic influences to determine their stage of speciation and to extend interpretations of speciating based on amphibian vocalization.
