ABSTRACT

Frogs were once thought to have relatively uninteresting social behavior, but recent studies on tropical and temperate zone species have revealed a surprising diversity of social systems. There is a growing literature on anuran mating systems, aggression, spacing behavior, and territoriality (Wells 1977b). Unfortunately, many aspects of courtship have been neglected. I use the term “courtship” to refer to interactions between males and females leading to pair formation and mating, and I include the use of both long-range and short-range signals by courting males. The purpose of this paper is to bring together the largely anecdotal literature on anuran courtship and to outline a number of problems that require more detailed investigation. More... »
