Background The morphology of anuran larvae is suggested to differ between species with tadpoles living in standing (lentic) and running (lotic) waters. To explore which character combinations within the general tadpole morphospace are associated with these habitats, we studied categorical and metric larval data of 123 (one third of which from lotic...

Rapid environmental change in highly biodiverse tropical regions demands efficient biomonitoring programmes. While existing metrics of species diversity and community composition rely on encounter‐based survey data, eDNA recently emerged as alternative approach. Costs and ecological value of eDNA‐based methods have rarely been evaluated in tropical...

Tadpoles exhibit a huge diversity of morphological characters. However, amphibian research still primary aims at adults and information on tadpoles is often scarce. In scientific (museum) collections, tadpoles are often disregarded and barely processed and thus are ‘hidden treasures’ to scientific research. The phylogenetic and geographic distribut...

The Madagascar-endemic mantellid genus Mantidactylus contains one subclade with two described frog species characterized by very large body sizes. This subclade is classified as the subgenus Mantidactylus and is widespread in eastern and northern Madagascar, but their reproductive biology and larval stages are still unknown. We here provide a detai...

The last decades have witnessed a rapid increase in our knowledge about amphibian diversity, and a growing number of studies have focused on anuran larval stages. Tadpoles can provide key information for conservation issues and the understanding of amphibian evolution. Moreover, research in tadpoles has the potential to advance species delimitation...

The dioramas of the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt had been already included in the plans for the new building of the museum at the end of the 19th century. The preparation of the taxidermy specimens was based on sketches taken from nature and zoo animals and also by the use of miniature prototypes. The first groups were available to the public...

The zooglogical dioramas of the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, Germany, are unique in their design concepts. They are also amongst a very few in Europe that, aside from repairs of war-induced damages, are largely in the same condition as when they were originally set up at the beginning of the 20th century. They have, however, suffered wear and...

Species distributed across vast continental areas and across major biomes provide unique model systems for studies of biotic diversification, yet also constitute daunting financial, logistic and political challenges for data collection across such regions. The tree frog Dendropsophus minutus (Anura: Hylidae) is a nominal species, continentally dist...

Zusammenfassung Die zoologischen Dioramen des Hessischen Landesmuseums Darmstadt sind hinsichtlich ihres Gestaltungs-konzepts einzigartig. Sie gehören zudem zu den wenigen Dioramen in europäischen Museen, welche ab-gesehen von reparierten Kriegsschäden seit ihrer Erstellung zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts nahezu unverändert geblieben sind. Dennoch h...

During an inventory and ecological study of amphibians in the lowlands of Bolivia, we recorded two populations of a large representative of the Leptodactylus pentadactylus species group (sensu Heyer 1979, 2005) formerly assigned to L. labyrinthicus. However, analyses of morphology, advertisement call, and Bayesian inference of mitochondrial DNA (16...

Jansen, M., Bloch, R., Schulze, A. & Pfenninger, M. (2011). Integrative inventory of Bolivia’s lowland anurans reveals hidden diversity. —Zoologica Scripta, 40, 567–583. We conducted an integrative species inventory and re-evaluated the taxonomic status of anuran populations from lowland Bolivia that we putatively ordered to 59 a priori species. Th...

This article describes a decline of amphibian populations in a study area in the Chiquitano region, Bolivia, as observed during acoustic surveys from 2005 to 2007. The total number of calling species in three survey nights per year changed from 14 in 2005, to 13 in 2006, and eight in 2007; average number of calling species in each survey night chan...

We studied species composition and diversity of anuran communities in different habitats in the eastern lowlands of Bolivia. Additionally, we investigated microhabitat selection, seasonal calling activity and call frequency segregation. The study site San Sebastián is a cattle ranch in a landscape consisting of a mosaic of different habitats (Cerra...

Is anyone using Helicon Focus plus Helicon Remote in combination with a Stackshot macro rail (and a Canon DSLR) and has experiences with unplanned rotated images and what it may cause? In one stack some images (raw and jpeg format) are unintentionally rotated to portrait format and consequently stacking isn't possible anymore...

The aim of this ongoing study is to contribute to the identification of phylogenetic and geographic patterns in tadpole morphology, using larval specimens collected in different regions of the globe and housed in museum collections in Germany and Switzerland. To achieve these aims, ‘classical’ museum collection work and modern morphological, molecular and statistical methodology are combined. Retrieving the available data from these collections, combined with available phylogenetic and ecological data, will contribute to the understanding of patterns in tadpole morphology.
