Marsh Frog (Rana ridibunda Pall.) in Cooling Ponds in the Middle Urals

Marsh Frog (Rana ridibunda Pall.) in Cooling Ponds in the Middle Urals Environmental conditions in cooling ponds of thermal power plants are favorable for marsh frogs. Their populations inhabiting Verkhne-Tagil and Reftinskoe reservoirs differ in some traits, such as size and age composition, growth rate after metamorphosis, spawning type, fecundity, and characteristics of larval development. Differentiation in body size manifests itself at the early stages of terrestrial life and progresses at later stages. As a consequence, larger individuals may reach maturity and participate in reproduction at an earlier age. Russian Journal of Ecology Springer Journals
