Amphibian characteristics

What makes a frog an amphibian and a snake a reptile? Both kinds can lay eggs but have different types of skin and breathe differently. Fun fact pages will help children identify each animal in the classroom like a pro once they have read the fourth book in the Arbordale Compare and Contrast series. As in the Polar Bears and Penguins, Clouds and Trees books, Amphibians and Reptiles uses stunning photographs and simple nonfiction text to get children thinking about the differences and similarities between the two kinds of animals.

Award-winning author Katharine Hall is a life-long nature lover and avid reader. She hopes the Compare and Contrast series will help children use critical thinking skills to explore and learn about the natural world around them. In addition to Mammals, Katharine's other titles in this series include Polar Bears and Penguins (NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book and IRA Children's and Young Adults' Book Award for Primary Non-Fiction), Amphibians and Reptiles, Clouds, and Trees. Katharine and her husband live in South Carolina with their dogs and cats.

Amphibians and reptiles characteristics

In the group of species Dendropsophus columbianus (4). Previously in the Hyla parviceps group (3). Duellman and Trueb (5) consider the Colombian species Dendropsophus bogerti to be conspecific with Dendropsophus carnifex but Kaplan (6) proposes that they are distinct species. Faivovich et al. (4) and Wiens et al. (2) did not test the monophyly of the Dendropsophus colombianus species group because they included only one species, Dendropsophus carnifex, in their analyses. It is closely related to Dendropsophus pelidna (11).

The species name carnifex means executioner in Latin and refers to John D. Lynch who collected most of the specimens on which the description was based (3). In English "lynching" means hanging on the gallows.

Amphibian and reptile reproduction

The vertebrate fauna in Cantabria presents a wide diversity thanks to the variety of ecological niches existing in the region and its geographical position, equidistant between the Mediterranean world of the southern peninsular and the nearby world of Atlantic Europe.

In relation to conservation, amphibian populations in Cantabria, like those around the world, are suffering a marked decline mainly due to habitat loss, disease and climate change.[5][6][7] The amphibians, commonly known as anurans, are the most endangered species in Cantabria.

Anurans, commonly known as frogs and toads, are characterized (in their adult phase) by their compact body, lacking tails and possessing highly developed hind legs adapted for jumping. Five families are represented in Cantabria, grouping ten species.

L: 8-13 cm. Body covered with wart-like protuberances. The color of its skin varies between a wide range of brownish, grayish and greenish tones. Its eyes are orange. It presents a marked sexual dimorphism, females are much larger than males.
