Fairchild L., 1981: Mate selection and behavioral thermo regulation in fowlers toads bufo woodhousei fowleri. Male Fowler's toads produce mating calls that are affected by the body size and temperature of the caller. Females are able to discriminate between variations in these calls and select the largest available males. By thermoregulation, males a...

In 1988, emergence of Fowler's Toads (Bufo woodhousii fowleri) at Long Point, Ontario coincided with heavy thunder showers. The breeding population was small; only 14 male B.

The selective forces that favor diurnal versus nocturnal activity may be evaluated by comparing age classes within a species that exhibits intraspecific (ontogenetic) variation in activity ti...

Cane toads (<i>Bufo marinus</i>) are now moving about 5 times faster through tropical Australia than they did a half-century ago, during the early phases of toad invasion. Radio-tracking has revealed higher daily rates of displacement...

Belden; Wildy; Hatch; Blaustein, 2000: Juvenile western toads, Bufo boreas, avoid chemical cues of snakes fed juvenile, but not larval, conspecifics. Previous investigations have demonstrated the importance of predator diet in chemically mediated antipredator behaviour. However, there are few data on responses to life-stage-specific predator diets, which could be important for animals like amph...

Pigs are assumed to recognize individuals because they react aggressively towards unfamiliar conspecifics, but we...
