In an effort to understand the factors behind the global decline in amphibians, researchers compared age, body size, and different indicators of reproductive investment, as well as prey availability, in natterjack toads from managed agrosystems and adjacent natural pine groves in Southwestern Spain.
Researchers have developed a hybrid ‘leaf shape’ and machine learning approach to build an automated identification system for tropical shrubs.
