North American hylid frogs exhibit patterns of locomotor energetics that are generally similar to those found among most terrestrial vertebrates: steady-state rate of oxygen consumption (VO(2ss)) increases within a range of sustainable speeds, above which VO(2ss) becomes independent of speed and endurance decreases. Among hylid anurans, species differences… CONTINUE READING
