Though the experiments were performed on a common laboratory frog, the African clawed frog
(Xenopus laevis), field studies indicate that atrazine, a potent endocrine disruptor, similarly affects frogs in the wild, and could possibly be one of the causes of amphibian declines around the globe, Hayes said.
Another scientific advance with considerable relevance for alternatives is the elucidation of fundamental biological processes, especially in the context of embryonic development in nonmammalian species, particularly Caenorhabditis elegans (a free-living nematode), Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), Danio rerio (zebraflsh), and Xenopus laevis (African clawed frog
The earliest published record of Bd is from a specimen of an African clawed frog
in 1938 from South Africa.

* In sub-Saharan Africa, several African clawed frog
species have interbred so successfully that at least seven new species with distinct genetic makeup have been created.
Response varied by species, but for some, such as the western toad and the African clawed frog
, individuals spent more time near the divider, and their neighbor's compartment, than in the other sectors of their domain.
The species Xenopus Laevis (South African clawed frog
) is more closely related to humans than one might expect.
