Movement Ecology and Habitat Use of Three Sympatric Anuran Species Amber L. Pitt1,4, Joseph J. Tavano2, Robert F. Baldwin2, and Benjamin S. Stegenga3 1Environmental Science Program and Department of Biology, Summit Street, Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut , USA 2Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation, Lehotsky Hall, Clemson University. Unfortunately, most studies that investigated anuran microhabitat selection have focused on northern species that hibernate and, therefore, shed little light on the winter habitat preferences of. In our own juvenile stage, many of us received our wide-eyed introduction to the wonders of nature by watching the metamorphosis of swimming tadpoles into leaping frogs and toads. The recent alarming declines in amphibian populations worldwide and the suitability of amphibians for use in answering research questions in disciplines as diverse as molecular systematics, animal behavior, and /5(2). Habitat selection behavior in three species of anuran larvae: environmental cues, ontogeny, and adaptive significance. Ph.D. thesis. Oregon State University, Corvallis.

The hypotheses tested were: (i) congeneric species show the same patterns of habitat selection, and alien species have been established following these patterns; (ii) there are differences in.   T Y B Sc. Zoology Notes: Paper IV –Animal BEhavior II. Model example: No two species living in the same general habitat can occupy identically the same ecological niche. Other example is dependent on the tradition of their behavior. Three similar species .

Habitat selection behavior was investigated as a proximate mechanism influencing spatial distributions of three species of anuran larvae. Rana cascadae, Hyla regilla, and Bufo boreas overlap in distribution in lakes and ponds of the Cascade Mts. and were chosen to provide a comparative basis for analyzing habitat selection behavior. Major. Mark Pyron, Kenneth M. Brown, in Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates (Fourth Edition), Habitat Choice. Habitat selection in gastropods seems based on shell shape, life history, and physiology, as illustrated by the ecology of pulmonates and caenogastropods (formerly Prosobranchia) (Brown et al., ).Pulmonates can use aerial respiration and have shells with higher drag.   O'Hara t selection behavior in three species of anuran larvae: Environmental cues, ontogeny and adaptive significance PhD Thesis, Oregon State University, New York () Google Scholar.
