Seasonal metabolic changes in a year-round reproductively active subtropical tree-frog (Hypsiboas prasinus)



Seasonal metabolic changes in a year-round reproductively active subtropical tree-frog (Hypsiboas prasinus)



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. Part A, Molecular & Integrative Physiology 152(2): 182-188



Although seasonal metabolic variation in ectothermic tetrapods has been investigated primarily in the context of species showing some level of metabolic depression during winter, but several species of anurans maintain their activity patterns throughout the year in tropical and subtropical areas. The tree-frog Hypsiboas prasinus occurs in the subtropical Atlantic Forest and remains reproductively active during winter, at temperatures below 10 degrees C.
