Herpetologica– Color and pattern change upon maturation is not uncommon among numerous animals. These changes tend to signify sexual development within the species and also increased male–male competition in searching for mates. Among frogs, color and pattern changes are quite common. Although vocal signals are normally used as a mode of communication, some frog and toad species use visual cues as well.

The article “Ontogenetic Change of Signal Brightness in the Foot-flagging Frog Species Staurois parvus and Staurois guttatus,” in the new issue of Herpetologica, examines Bornean foot-flagging frogs and analyzes differences in body color and changes in foot webbings. Working at the Vienna Zoo, the authors studied variations in the colors of the foot webbings and bodies of different age classes of Staurois parvus and S. guttatus. They also compared their findings to color data from wild populations, and discuss the color variation in relation to diet, signaling behavior, and habitat.

The authors determined that the foot webbing coloration of both the S. parvus and S. guttatus changed with age. Out of the three parameters tested (brightness, hue, and UV Blue chroma), brightness was the one that most affected the color change. There was a difference between the brightness of the foot when compared with size and mass, as the feet of larger frogs were far brighter even though differences in body coloration were absent. The authors hypothesize that the brightness of the foot webbings are visual indicators of the age and maturity level of the frog, showing that visual as well as aural cues are important to these species.

Because this study was completed at a zoological park, it does not fully encompass the biology of S. parvus and S. guttatus in the wild. The authors suggest that future research delve further into whether foot webbings brighten even more with age or if mating has an effect on brightness. This type of research is important as continuing to learn specifics on behavior, habitat, and reproduction will help in the future conservation of these frogs.

Copeia 103(1)

Contents:

Note: With this issue Copeia is now using a volume number instead of the year. Since the ASIH was founded in 1913 they have decided to start this year with volume 103 in recognition of their 103 years as a society. Copeia however, does not have 103 volumes. From 1913 to 1929 it was published in 173 numbered issues. These were generally short and a smaller format (about 5.5" x 8.5"). Beginning in 1930 the journal was published with 4 issues per year, in the same basic format as the journal is today. The new volume number is a welcome addition and will reduce errors in the citation of articles in Copeia.

Registration is now open for the 2015 SSAR Meeting in Lawrence, Kansas.

The Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles, together with Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) and the herpetological societies of Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas, the Center for North American Herpetology, and the International Society for the History and Bibliography of Herpetology will hold a joint meeting from July 30-August 2, 2015 on the beautiful and centrally located campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence.

All scientific sessions will be held in the Kansas Union, which is adjacent to the KU Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum, the setting of more than a century of research and graduate education in herpetology. The intimate campus setting will facilitate personal and friendly interactions while moderating fees for registration and lodging.

This unique campus format meeting will include oral and poster presentations, silent and live auctions, vendor displays, student social, symposia, and special lectures provided by David Hillis (Keynote),  Harry W. Greene (Plenary) and Miguel Vences (President’s Travelogue) and Tyrone Hayes (PARC Special Lecturer).

 

Conference activity highlights include:
• Redesigned audiovisual shows arranged by David Dennis and Eric Juterbock
• Reception honoring distinguished senior herpetologists, allowing students to interact personally with luminaries in the field
• The Herpetological Quiz, arranged by the graduate students at UT Arlington and KU, with prizes for winners
• Guided tours of herpetological collections and newly renovated laboratories in the Biodiversity Institute
• Tour of the Fitch Reservation at the KU Biological Field Station and Reserves, led by George Pisani
• Special presentation for the International Society for the History and Bibliography of Herpetology featuring author Sally Haines of the KU Spencer Research Library
• Display of live Kansas herps with photographic set-ups
• Exploring non-academic careers in herpetology: a lunch time event for students hosted by PARC
