BackgroundMulti-character empirical studies are important contributions to our understanding of the process of speciation. The relatively conserved morphology of, and importance of the mate recognition system in anurans, combined with phylogenetic tools, provide an opportunity to address predictions about the relative role of each in the process of speciation. We examine the relationship among patterns of variation in morphology, call characters, and 16S gene sequences across seven populations… Expand
The Early Stages of Speciation in Amazonian Forest Frogs: Phenotypic Conservatism Despite Strong Genetic Structure
TLDR
The phenotypic conservatism among populations was surprising in view of the high genetic structuring observed, and indicates a prevailing role of stabilizing selective forces in the process of sexual signal and morphological differentiation. Expand
Sexual signals of the Amazonian frog Allobates paleovarzensis: geographic variation and stereotypy of acoustic traits
TLDR
The results indicate that body size and sampling site jointly affected the variability of the call traits, and geographic distances among populations and the river barrier had no significant effect on the overall acoustic variation, indicating that local stabilising selective forces may be important in the process of call differentiation. Expand
Contact zone dynamics during early stages of speciation in a chorus frog (Pseudacris crucifer)
TLDR
The spring peeper is a widespread Nearctic chorus frog with six divergent mitochondrial DNA lineages, many of which came into secondary contact during the Holocene, and genetics, morphology, advertisement calls and female preference for two lineages that now overlap in southwestern Ontario, Canada are examined. Expand
Discordance in body size, colour pattern, and advertisement call across genetically distinct populations in a Neotropical anuran (Dendropsophus ebraccatus)
TLDR
This study quantified behavioural and phenotypic variation among populations from genetically divergent regions in the Central American treefrog, Dendropsophus ebraccatus, and demonstrated regional divergence in body size, colour pattern frequencies, and male advertisement call. Expand
Can treefrog phylogeographical clades and species’ phylogenetic topologies be recovered by bioacoustical analyses?
TLDR
Acoustic communication in D. elegans seems to be conserved among populations, and the phylogeographical history of the species does not explain the variation among lineages in call properties, despite some congruent phylogenetic signals evident at the species level. Expand
Deciphering the products of evolution at the species level: the need for an integrative taxonomy
TLDR
This study reveals that morphology alone is not sufficient to uncover all species, as there is no other single line of evidence independently, and shows that only an integrative approach combining all sources of evidence provides the necessary feedback to evaluate the taxonomic status of existing species and to detect putative new ones. Expand
Cryptic diversity and deep divergence in an upper Amazonian leaflitter frog, Eleutherodactylus ockendeni
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of the wide-spread terrestrial leaflitter frog Eleutherodactylus ockendeni (Leptodactylidae) is developed from 13 localities throughout its range in Ecuador using data from two mitochondrial genes to uncover previously unsuspected cryptic species diversity within the common leaflighter frog E. ockendseni. Expand
Diversification History of Clown Tree Frogs in Neotropical Rainforests (Anura, Hylidae, Dendropsophus leucophyllatus group).
TLDR
Investigating the phylogenetic relationships and biogeographic history of tree frogs in the Dendropsophus leucophyllatus species group, which is distributed across Amazonia and the Atlantic rainforests, indicates that the group includes at least 14 independent lineages, which are currently arranged into ten described species. Expand
Underestimation of Species Richness in Neotropical Frogs Revealed by mtDNA Analyses
TLDR
This work analyses published and new 16S rDNA sequences from 60 frog species of Amazonia-Guianas to obtain a minimum estimate of the number of undescribed species in this region and proposes a more inclusive pairwise genetic distance of 0.03 between taxa to target lineages that could correspond to candidate species.

Perception and history: molecular phylogeny of a diverse group of neotropical frogs, the 30-chromosome hyla (anura: hylidae).
TLDR
A long history of dispersal and colonization may complicate, or even preclude, the accurate recovery of the history of this species in the Amazon Basin, and it remains to be seen whether the patterns found here will prove common among neotropical frogs. Expand
Genetic and morphological variation in Vanzolinius discodactylus: A test of the river hypothesis of speciation
TLDR
It is suggested that morphological characters may evolve at different rates than detectable allozyme differentiation in Amazonian frog populations, and genetic diversity within populations and genetic diversification among populations were found. Expand
ALLOZYME AND ADVERTISEMENT CALL VARIATION IN THE TÚNGARA FROG, PHYSALAEMUS PUSTULOSUS
TLDR
Variation in advertisement calls and allozymes in 30 populations along a 5000‐km transect throughout most of the range of the túngara frog, Physalaemus pustulosus, exhibits predictable patterns of geographical variation, although a substantial portion of variation among populations is not explained by geographic position.

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
HISTORICAL ISOLATION, RANGE EXPANSION, AND SECONDARY CONTACT OF TWO HIGHLY DIVERGENT MITOCHONDRIAL LINEAGES IN SPOTTED SALAMANDERS (AMBYSTOMA MACULATUM)
TLDR
The evolutionary history of spotted salamander populations underscores the generality of biogeographical processes in eastern North America: despite differences in population size, glacial refugia, and vagility, similar signatures of differentiation are evident among and within widespread taxa.

Isolating Mechanisms and Interspecies Interactions in Anuran Amphibians
  • W. F. Blair
  • Medicine, Biology
  • The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1964
TLDR
Examination of various allopatric and sympatric species pairs in the anurans indicates that, as known at present, there is no predictable sequence in which the various kinds of isolating mechanisms evolve, however, sympatrics species always differ in mating call, and some allop atric populations have been shown to differ enough for the females to discriminate between the calls of their own and foreign males.

Color polymorphism in neotropical treefrogs: an allozymic investigation of the taxonomic status of Hyla favosa Cope
TLDR
The available data support the hypothesis that the three phenotypes belong to a single species, which lack diagnostic genetic differences, are morphologically similar, and seem to breed syntopically. Expand

TLDR
The extent of divergence in morphology and colour-pattern between allopatric populations of the corroboree frog was assessed by examination of eggs, tadpoles and adults throughout the distributional range of the species, supporting their recognition as separate species. Expand

TLDR
This survey detected species-level paraphyly or polyphyly in 23% of 2319 assayed species, demonstrating this phenomenon to be statistically supported, taxonomically widespread, and far more common than generally recognized. Expand
