Exploration, Sex, Death and Invasion in the Amazing World of Frogs, with David C. Blackburn, Ph.D., Associate Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, Florida Museum

More than 1,600 frog species have been described in the past 10 years. With each added species, scientists gain new insights into the life of frogs. Simultaneously, many anurans are disappearing while others are invading different areas. Hear about this interesting time of discovery in the amphibian world, including some of frogs’ outlandish lifestyles and unique reproductive behaviors. Blackburn will also discuss what humans can do to help detour environmental changes affecting frogs.
