Abstract
Las historias vitales de los anfibios son sumamente sensibles a la temperatura y a la precipitación, y hay una clara evidencia que el reciente cambio climático ha tenido como resultado para algunas especies una anticipación del periodo de cría a lo largo del año. También se cree que el aumento reciente en la ocurrencia de fenómenos de El Niño ha causado el descenso de anuros en América Central y está relacionado con la mortalidad elevada de embriones de anfibios en el noroeste de los Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, la evidencia que relaciona el descenso de anfibios en América Central con el clima está basado únicamente en correlaciones, y no se entienden los mecani...
