The heart begins to form early during vertebrate development and is the first functional organ of the embryo. This study aimed to describe and compare the heart development in three Neotropical anuran species, Physalaemus albonotatus, Elachistocleis bicolor, and Scinax nasicus. Different Gosner Stages (GS) of embryos (GS 18–20) and premetamorphic (...

Tadpoles detect chemical signals released from predators and conspecifics, and those present in the environment, and adjust their behavioral responses. This study evaluated the swimming activity of Rhinella dorbignyi (Duméril and Bibron, 1941) tadpoles exposed to chemical signals, including cues from a predator fish Synbranchus marmoratus Bloch, 19...

Amphibians find a suitable habitat in rice agroecosystems, but their viability is affected by the sublethal effects of agrochemicals. Animal condition, external morphology, and liver and male gonad tissue histology were examined on Lysapsus limellum and Rhinella bergi, common species that occurs in rice fields (RF) and reference sites (RS) from San...
Article
A detailed description of the tegument and parotoid glands of pre-metamorphic, post-metamorphic, juvenile and adult individuals of Rhinella bergi is presented to provide an exhaustive analysis of the integumentary characteristics of this species. Fragments of the tegument were fixed in Bouin solution and preserved in buffered Formol 10%. Subsequent...

In September 2005, the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) held a summit for the conservation of amphibians where specialists from around the world agreed that, in addition to the need to document the declines and extinctions, we need to promote action strategies designed to respond to the global biodiversity crisis. The outcome of this summit w...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the acute and chronic effects caused by exposure to the 2,4 dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D)-based commercial herbicide Amina Zamba® on Physalaemus albonotatus tadpoles from Gosner stage 25. The lethal concentration (LC50) was determined after exposure to different concentrations of Amina Zamba® (350 to 2400...

The toxic or nutritionally deleterious effects resulting from the consumption of genetically modified (GM) foods are still a matter of debate worldwide. In amphibians, the environmental impact of the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin (e.g., Cry proteins) engineered into GM Bt crops is barely known. Thus, the aim of the present study was to evaluate...
Article
Poultry litter (PL), which is usually used as organic fertilizer, is a source of nutrients, metals, veterinary pharmaceuticals and bacterial pathogens, which, through runoff, may end up in the nearest aquatic ecosystems. In this study, Leptodactylus chaquensis at different development stages (eggs, larval stages 28 and 31 here referred to as stages...

Se cuantificaron y compararon los melanomacrófagos (MM) y la actividad de la enzima Glutatión S−Transferasa (GST) en hígados de ejemplares adultos de Leptodactylus chaquensis (Anura, Leptodactylidae) colectados en un cultivo de arroz (CA) (siete días posteriores a la aplicación de clorpirifos, CPF) y en un sitio de referencia (SR) en el departament...
Article
The ecological risks posed by two β-diketone antibiotics (DKAs, enrofloxacin, ENR and ciprofloxacin, CPX), characterized by their long persistence in aqueous environments and known deleterious effect on model organisms such as zebrafish were analysed using Rhinella arenarum larvae. Sublethal tests were conducted using environmentally relevant conce...

We present a new record of Amphisbaena trachura (Squamata: Amphisbaenidae) for the northeast of Corrientes province, Argentina. Seven specimens (five females and two males) were identified using morphological and meristic characters. The specimens were found under Eucalyptus sp. logs on 6 December 2014 and 3 March 2015, in General Alvear Department...

El objetivo del presente estudio fue caracterizar aspectos reproductivos de Dendropsophus sanborni (Schmidt, 1944) (Anura, Hylidae) en la región noroeste de la provincia de Corrientes, al Nordeste de Argentina. Para esto, se analizó el ciclo gonadal de machos y hembras, la existencia de dimorfismo sexual y el periodo de vocalización de los machos....

In this study is presented information about species richness, vocalization season and calling site used in anurans assemblage located in San Cosme, Corrientes, Argentina. A total of 22 samplings were made between October of 2010 and September of 2011. Four sites were selected and the techniques applied were: visual encounter surveys and auditives...
