Researchers build their own love pad for frogs

Studying the mating behavior of eastern gray tree frogs in the wild can be very difficult. At any given time, hundreds of frogs may be singing their love call in various pitches and tones over many hours. Discerning which frogs are doing what can be nearly impossible.

So, researchers at UWM built their own “frog arena.” That allows them to control most aspects of the situation, giving them clear information what calls the female frog finds most attractive.
