Abstract
Climate changes may be influencing the breeding patterns of certain organisms. Effects on breed- ing activities could eventually lead to significant changes in population structure that may be reflected in population declines of species that are especially sensitive, such as some amphibians. Thus, climate changes may have affected the timing of breeding in some European amphibian species. To further test whether am- phibian reproductive cycles in temperate countries are responding to climate changes, we conducted an anal- ysis of the breeding phenology of four species of North American anurans for which we have long-term data sets. Populations of at least two of...
