Frog

A 2-DAY WEBINAR ON FROG ECOLOGY AND BIOACOUSTICS

 

Frogs belong to the order Anura, the most diverse order of amphibians on Earth. There are currently 25 recognized families and about 4000 species of frogs which occupy several habitats like terrestrial, arboreal and aquatic ecosystems. Around 300 species of frogs are found in India, with The Western Ghats showing the highest diversity. They offer significant variation in the colour of their skin brown or green to camouflage and hide from predators to vivid patterns of bright colours like red, blue, and yellow as seen in poison dart frogs to ward off predators. Additionally, each species has its own unique vocalization. Bioacoustics studies of these croaks can be a great aid in conservation efforts. To learn more about this amazing group of amphibians, join our 2-Day Webinar on Frog Ecology and Bioacoustics on the 19th and 20th of November.

About the speaker:
