Even though amphibians usually inhabit moist areas, the chances of water loss due to evaporation cannot be ruled out, and that’s where their skin – which is specifically designed to minimize the amount of water loss, comes into play. Other than inhabiting moist environment, some species also resort to nocturnal lifestyle to minimize water loss. The introduced Cane Toad Rhinella marina has recently expanded its range into the monsoonal north of Australia near Darwin, Northern Territory. Aggregated toads were collected toward the end of the prolonged dry season from an isolated and localized occurrence of moist soil, where they were observed in typical water absorbing postures. Water potential of the moist soil (−31 kPa) was Cited by: Measurements.—As measures of comparison for growth and development across taxa, we recorded stage, mass, body length (snout–vent), and total length (snout–vent plus tail) every other day for Pelobates and Pelodytes and daily for New World spadefoot 25–31 and 41–46 were assigned according to Gosner (). Stages 32–38 were assigned according to Gosner but made Cited by: Ecological and Environmental Physiology of Amphibians consists of a detailed review and synthesis of amphibian physiology, with emphasis on physiological mechanisms that allow amphibians to adapt to a wide range of environments and habitats.

Amphibians are ideal for such a discussion because, as we discuss below, amphibian populations are experiencing declines throughout the world and disease is an important factor Cited by:

It is likely that the abundance and distribution of amphibians inhabiting these flatwoods generally have been affected by these changes. Enge and Marion () compared amphibian species richness and abundance in a naturally regenerated yr-old slash pine forest to recent clearcuts within the forest. amphibians require full spectrum lighting, black or red lights are essential for nocturnal species. using proper UV lights and time limitations are very important. temperatures usually are set to be higher during the day and lower at night.

Abstract. Any attempt to analyse the ecological adaptations of amphibians inhabiting xeric environments in a comprehensive manner presents a formidable task, especially since amphibians live in two worlds and the factors affecting their lives differ greatly in the aquatic environment compared with the terrestrial-xeric one.
