Amphibians are unique in their ability to live both on the land and in water and metamorphose during their life cycle. Frogs lay eggs, usually in a. Chordata. Vertebrata. Amphibia.

For instance, hybridogenesis in P. Kleptons therefore act as genetic parasites Water frogs are notorious invaders: many taxa have been introduced outward their natural ranges P. Some are currently expanding P. Importantly, the ability of genome exclusion seems to vary geographically, depending on the hybridogenetic system from which the invaders is derived 16 , thus prompting for knowledge regarding the nature and origins of Pelophylax introductions.
A major management issue is that morphological determination of these species is highly challenging 28 , 29 , 30 , and becomes even more confusing with the cryptic occurrence of exotic lineages throughout Western Europe. One of the few Western European regions that has remained nearly free of water frogs is the Larzac plateau in southern France.
Surveys from the s did not mention water frogs in this region 31 and more recent monitoring reported only scarce records at the early s MD, pers. Interestingly, the situation radically changed in the recent years: water frogs are currently massively expanding and have colonized most of the southern Larzac MD, pers. This situation provides a unique opportunity to characterize a new invasion of Pelophylax frogs in statu nascendi.
To this end, we conducted a multilocus genetic survey in order to 1 determine the nature of expanding populations, 2 reconstruct the scenario of invasion, 3 get insights into the hybridization potential of the lineages involved and 4 assess the utility of morphological determination methods.
We show that our study area is being invaded by three lineages simultaneously undistinguishable by morphology , two of them potentially forming a new hybridogenetic complex. This exceptional pattern provides a textbook application of genetic methods for understanding the onset of biological invasions and guide their management, and further emphasizes the alarming rate and invasive potential of Pelophylax aliens.
Results Molecular polymorphism Our data combined mitochondrial cyt-b sequences and nuclear microsatellite genotypes see Methods. We could include a total of 84 mitochondrial cyt-b haplotypes from the study area and other European Pelophylax, over bp aligned polymorphic sites, of which are parsimony-informative.
Microsatellite diversity ranged from 5 to 21 alleles average: MtDNA analyses We identified three different mitochondrial lineages throughout the study area in southern France, belonging to three known Pelophylax monophyletic taxa Fig. Samples collected prior to the observed expansion — already featured all three mitotypes P. Analyses with restricted sequence length bp , but enabling comparisons with published sequences of P.
Figure 1 A Mitochondrial phylogeny of available Pelophylax cytochrome-b haplotypes and B distribution ranges of the three lineages sampled in the study area. Haplotypes sampled in the study area are highlighted in bold on the phylogeny. The map was built using ArcGIS 9. Pie charts are proportional to sample sizes.

Arrows highlight the two individuals identified P. Full size image Although most individuals have matching nuclear and mitochondrial ancestries Fig. First, several populations feature multiple cyto-nuclear discordances, i.
Population-based analyses suggested lesser nuclear differentiation between P. Genetic structure within P. In contrast with mtDNA, microsatellite heterozygosity was higher for P. It was overall similar among the populations within species P. Morphometric analyses Seventy-four frogs from the study area were suitable for the morphometric analyses 17 P.
Overall, morphometrics of the three species strongly overlap on the PCA, although some P. Accordingly, three out of four ratios significantly differ between P. We show that this invasion involves multiple taxa, indicative of a myriad of independent introductions at narrow geographic and time scales.
Importantly, it may induce a new hybridogenetic complex that, if not contained, could represent a serious threat to the native water frog species occurring in this part of Europe. Multiple Pelophylax invasions in southern France Our study identified three distinct Pelophylax species in Larzac, an area nearly-free of water frogs a decade ago, as well as the nearby lowlands. Their presence is demonstrated by unequivocal mitochondrial evidence, further supported by reciprocal nuclear clustering of microsatellite genotypes.
Importantly, whereas previous genetic analyses could not reliably discriminate between P. However, none of the three species detected in Larzac could be discriminated by classic morphological criteria. Being naturally distributed in eastern parts of Europe, P.
These taxa are known European invaders, originating from uncontrolled releases, linked in some cases with the frog-leg industry P. Given previous records that showed no water frogs over Larzac in the s 31 although one of our locality, loc.
Bug repellent and oils on human hands may damage the delicate skin of these little amphibians.
Every year frogs all over the province must cross busy roads. Watch for frogs on the roads especially between April and June. Private land owners have an important role to play in species recovery. You may be eligible for stewardship programs that support the protection and recovery of species at risk and their habitats. Volunteer with a local nature club or provincial park to participate in surveys or stewardship work focused on species at risk. Visit the Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas www.
So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried.

Although populations of many plants and animals have been declining worldwide, amphibians are experiencing an especially dramatic decline.
