Seasonal Distributions of True Frogs (Family Ranidae) in Tropical Rainforest of Southwestern Nigeria

Although Nigeria encompasses one of the most abundant anuran faunas in the world, quantitative information on anuran ecology are limited, especially in the Southwestern region. Four study sites with different vegetation structures in southwest Nigeria were selected and monitored for anuran species. Four species (Rana asdpersa, R. aurora, R. clamitans and R. sylvatica) of the family Ranidae were identified. The study sites were located at Okitipupa, Ore, Osogbo and Ile-Ife. This study was carried in both rainy and dry season, between the years 2002 and 2007. In general, fewer number of amphibian species were observed during the dry season at the four study sites. Total number of individuals caught in the study sight was slightly higher in the rainy season (53.4%) than in the dry season.
