Preliminary observations on the circadian variation in site fidelity in Atelopus hoogmoedi (Lescure, 1974) (Anura, Bufonidae).

Amphibian & Reptile Conservation 11(1) [General Section]: 45–50 (e136).

Inhalt:

Anhand von 14 markierten Männchen wurde die Ortstreue von Atelopus hoogmoedi überprüft.

"In conclusion our observations, although sparse, seem to confirm that Atelopus hoogmoedi does indeed show strong diurnal and nocturnal site fidelity, during breeding and non-breeding seasons. Although several hypotheses may explain this, the fact that perch site return rate is the highest after dark supports the predation evasion hypothesis."
