Abstract. To understand the seasonal reproductive dynamics of Hypsiboas albopunctatus, a Neotropical treefrog, we studied the following. Diagnosis Hypsiboas albopunctatus differs from the other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: (1) modal webbing formula of the. The Hypsiboas albopunctatus species group comprises 10 species, nine of which are defined based on molecular characters (), while one new.

Journal of Biogeography 23 1: Advertisement call duration was positively correlated and maximum frequency algopunctatus negatively associated with air temperature, while call repetition rate and note duration had a positive correlation with body size and number of conspecific calling males, respectively Table 3.

We used power tests to determine if our sampling protocol and analytical framework enable us to test our working hypothesis Faul et al. This information is useful to demonstrate that we are dealing with the same species described formerly. SVL and the body masses of the males were NewYork, Columbia University Press.


Regarding aggressive call I, the minimum frequency was negatively associated with body size and positively associated with air humidity, while SPL and calling rate were negatively associated with air temperature and positively associated with the number of conspecific calling males, respectively.
