The results of this study revealed that the illegal hydraulic mining activities in the village of Tumpagon in Cagayan de Oro City have negative impact on the diversity of anurans
in the area.
As for anurans
, three types of AQPs: AQP2, AQP6vs, and AQP6ub, are regulated by AVT (Suzuki and Tanaka, 2010) (Fig.

FIRST RECORD OF THE PRESENCE AND REPRODUCTION OF THE ANURAN

, the Chao2 estimate was eight species (SD = 2.
A relatively recent literature review by Romano and Di Cerbo (2007) found that anuran
egg predation by leeches had been documented in some 20 species, representing 3.
Moreover, temporary environments (as artificial temporary ponds amidst pasture areas), where the tadpole's predators are less abundant or absent, can attract greater number of anurans
than the permanent water bodies (Woodward 1983, Skelly 1997), allowing the larvae to exploit food resources before colonization of insects and fish, while at the same time, avoid predators (Barreto and Moreira 1996, Eterovick and Sazima 2000, Prado et al.
satan several specimens interpreted by MARTINELLI & FORASIEPI (2004) as indeterminate anurans
, including five incomplete presacral vertebrae (MACN RN 1067), five incomplete angulosplenials (MANC RN 1068), and a complete radius-ulna (MACN RN 1070).

in streams in southeastern Brazil.
The probability of occurrence of Rough-skinned Newts and pre-metamorphic life stages of both anurans
decreased during the study, perhaps because of ongoing drought in California or precipitation-induced changes in phenology during the final year of the study.
The exception is a short-term (one month) paper by Ford and Scott (2006) that focused on the occurrence of aquatic breeding anurans
at reproductive sites, who determined that tadpoles of six species were spatially partitioned in the habitat, and found no differences in tadpole assemblages in forested and non-forested sites.
have adopted a sit-and-wait strategy for preys' location, leading to a generalist diet (Duellman and Trueb 1986).
Sexual dimorphism regarding differences in body parts related to locomotion has not been particularly investigated, hence the present paper aims to contribute to better understanding of sexual variation in anurans
