Living in polluted habitats:
new insights into amphibian ecotoxicology

We test the effects of new pollutants on several physiological stress biomarkers in amphibian larvae and determine their capacity to disrupt endocrine functioning.

Detecting sublethal effects of environmental stress as agents of silent population declines

We investigate whether sublethal effects of global warming and environmental pollution might cause silent population declines in the common frog (Rana temporaria).

Determining the winners and losers of climate change:
amphibians vs. freshwater fish

We aim to demonstrate global (climate) change impacts on freshwater fish and amphibians using a meta-analytical approach.

Amphibians in a changing world:
an ecophysiological perspective on amphibian metamorphosis

We investigated the capacity for developmental and physiological plasticity in larvae of two anuran species, the common frog (Rana temporaria) and the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis).
