Newly constructed ponds in the municipality of Arhus, eastern Jutland, Denmark, were investigated in order to determine the prescence of breeding amphibians. Amphibians were breeding in 81 (98%) of the 83 ponds. Of the five species recorded Triturus vulgaris was the most widespread (table 1). The colonization pattern varied between species (figure 1). T. vulgaris appeared to be the best colonizer occurring in more than 60% of the ponds two years after construction. Triturus cristatus colonized ponds at a slower rate and occurred significantly more often in woodland ponds compared to ponds in arable or in urban areas. Bufo bufo was found in 20% of the ponds that were 1-2 years old. This species, however, later disappeared from its best breeding ponds, where, on the other hand, breeding numbers of Rana temporaria increased considerably. R. temporaria occurred most frequently in ponds that were 5-10 years old.
