Climatic Heterogeneity in the Bolivian Andes: Are Frogs Trapped?
Short-legged, small, robust frogs of the family Craugastoridae present a remarkable beta-diversity in the high Andes, their distributions being characterized by a very high degree of micro-endemism to specific valleys. We used dataloggers to study the temperature and humidity conditions of microhabitats of several species of the genus Microkayla at three elevation belts: below, within, and above the altitudinal range of their distribution in Bolivia. We also conducted thermal physiology...[Show more]
