monogamous --the only such species of frogs known to science.
 

Summary: monogamous -- the only such species
of frogs known to science.
This is an exciting research program
that has shown how a single ecological
variable, pool size, can drive the
evolution of parental care, biparental
care, trophic feeding, and social
and genetic monogamy. Equally
impressive is how this study recruits
methods from a variety of disciplines,
including correlational data
derived from comparative studies,
well-controlled experimental
manipulations, and descriptive
analyses using molecular markers, to
provide powerful insights in addressing
a very general question -- does
the family that works together stay
together?
