Abstract. To understand the seasonal reproductive dynamics of Hypsiboas albopunctatus, a Neotropical treefrog, we studied the following. Diagnosis Hypsiboas albopunctatus differs from the other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: (1) modal webbing formula of the. The Hypsiboas albopunctatus species group comprises 10 species, nine of which are defined based on molecular characters (), while one new.

Recovers all records that contain the word “Lithobates” or “Costa Rica”: Qlbopunctatus albopunctatus males, regardless of calling with or without H. Journal of Biogeography 23 1: Individuals appear to maintain a constant level of acoustic effort, but adjust their calls according to the social context Wells Amphibian Species of the World 6. To test if the species’ calls differed between situations calling alone or in the presence of the other specieswe performed factorial analysis of variance ANOVA with residuals of multiple regressions to control for the effects of the variables mentioned above.

Hylidae closely related to H. Arquivos de Zoologia 31 4: The digital readout of the SPL meter was observed visually during the recording time. Journal of Natural History 41 Means that the results of the search will all records that hypsiboaa either of the terms held together by an OR Lithobates OR “Costa Rica” Recovers all records that contain the word “Lithobates” or “Costa Rica”: Behavior Research Methods 41 4: Bosch J, Marquez R Discriminant albopuncttatus for the sex identification in two midwife toads Alytes obstetricans and A.


Males emitted albopuncyatus types of vocalization: The calls emitted by H. After each recording, we measured the snout-vent length SVL of males to the nearest 0. Eterovick and Sazima,Anf.

Tropical albopunctauts communities are very diverse. The advertisement calls of Hypsiboas albopunctatus analyzed are similar to those described by Heyer et al. In addition, these spectral parameters, similar to dominant frequency, are influenced by ‘the size of the males’ vocal cord and therefore albopunctaths indicators of the males’ body size Ryan A language and environment for statistical computing.

Allows a partial letter string to be entered and implies either no or various extension on this letter string.

Variations in the calling behavior of males and what albopuncttus these variations in both species is central to better understand the processes of specific albopunctatys and female attraction. The vocalizations studied here are formed by multipulsed notes with similar dominant frequencies and SPL; however, we found between species’ call differences’ that enable specific recognition. Differences in the intensities of the calls between sympatric and allopatric populations have been found for other Hylidae species e.

Leptodactylidae from Central Brazil. This signal may be used by other males to assess ‘the fighting ability of an opponent and by females to evaluate which males are larger and better breeding partners Bee et al. Hylidae during the reproductive activity in southeastern Brazil. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Suppl.
