, Anura, Brachycephalidae, Eleutherodactylus repens: distribution eXtension.
We present a survey of the taxonomic distribution the two types of SLC (paedomorphosis and direct development) in the Amphibia
, review the life history theory and the ecological pressures that favor each types of SLC, and discuss the endocrine mechanisms that have been implicated thus far.
Fish and amphibia
are known to be capable of regenerating their optic nerves throughout life.

Further classification of skin alkaloids from Neotropical poison frogs (Dendrobatidae), with a general survey of toxic/noxious substances in the amphibia
The loss and restoration of regenerative capacity in the limbs of tailless amphibia
Before this study, evidence for endocrine-disrupting activity of the POP acetochlor in Amphibia
was restricted to ranid species.
