Klemens, Michael W. The life cycle of frogs, as other amphibians, consists of two distinct stages: the larval stage followed by metamorphosis to an adult stage. Klauber, Lawrence M. Amphibia includes frogs, salamanders, and caecilians. The larval stage of a frog, the tadpole, is often a filter-feeding herbivore. Here, the frog has started to develop limbs, but its tadpole tail is still evident.
Additional characteristics of amphibians include pedicellate teeth—teeth in which the root and crown are calcified, separated by a zone of noncalcified tissue—and a papilla amphibiorum and papilla basilaris, structures of the inner ear that are sensitive to frequencies below and above 10,00 hertz, respectively. Anurans have a body plan that is more specialized for movement. Most salamanders use their sense of smell to find a mate. McGraw-Hill, New York. Science An impressive review of current knowledge concerning all aspects of amphibian biology.
When they are combined together, it forces the reader to jump back and forth between topics and pay close attention to the short notes that "this does not happen in reptiles" or "unlike amphibians Part 4 Evolution: origin and early evolution - nature of a tetrapod, primitive tetrapods, tetrapod affinities lungfishes or lobe-fins?

Living salamanders include approximately species, some of which are aquatic, other terrestrial, and some that live on land only as Biology of amphibians book. By Terryo on Aug 30, My daughter is a biologist and loves this book. Legs, lungs, cutaneous respiration, pulmonary veins, and a partially divided heart have helped them to Biology of amphibians book, and is what they all have in common.
Evolution Connection The Paleozoic Era and the Evolution of Vertebrates The climate and geography of Earth was vastly different during the Paleozoic Era, when vertebrates arose, as compared to today.
How do these changes prepare it for life as an adult frog? The majority of salamanders are lungless; respiration occurs through the skin or through external gills; some terrestrial salamanders have primitive lungs; a few species have both lungs and gills.
Describe the parental involvement of most amphibians. University Press of Florida, Gainesville. Some species in all orders bypass a free-living larval stage.
Amphibians generally lay large number of eggs. Many marine vertebrates became extinct near the end of the Devonian period, which ended about million years ago, and both marine and terrestrial vertebrates were decimated by a mass extinction in the early Permian period about million years ago.
Extremely well illustrated and easy to read. Adult frogs use their hind limbs to jump on land. British Herpetological Society, London.
Amphibians have a moist, permeable skin that is achieved via mucus glands that keep the skin lubricated in order to perform cutaneous respiration. Amphibians By the end of this section, you will be able to: Describe the important difference between the life cycle of amphibians and the life cycles of other vertebrates Distinguish between the characteristics of Urodela, Anura, Biology of amphibians book Apoda Describe the evolutionary history of amphibians Amphibians are vertebrate tetrapods.
Apoda: Caecilians An estimated species comprise caecilians, a group of amphibians that belong to the order Apoda. During the early Paleozoic, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was much greater than it is today.
These Biology of amphibians book prepare it for life on land as an adult frog. Originally, amphibians were covered and then reptiles. Laurentia and Gondwana were continents located near the equator that subsumed much of the current day landmasses in a different configuration [link].
Fossil evidence indicates that amphibians evolved from lobe-finned fishes about million years ago. Amphibians may attract mates with calls or scents.Amphibians first became common during the Carboniferous period. Biologist marked this time as the age of amphibians. By the late Carboniferous, much of North America was covered by low-lying tropical swamplands.
Thirty-four families of amphibians thrived in this wet terrestrial environment, sharing it with pelycosaurs and other early reptiles/5(17). Amphibians also have an auricular operculum, which is an extra bone in the ear that transmits sounds to the inner ear. All extant adult amphibians are carnivorous.
