DORIS PREININGER worked with foot-flagging frogs in her
undergraduate studies. In her graduation thesis she addresses the multimodal (acoustic and visual) communication in
anurans and tries to explain how selection on senders and receivers promotes complex displays under different
acoustic and environmental conditions. She is currently completing her dissertation at the Department of
Evolutionary Biology, University Vienna. Her research includes foot-flagging species from Borneo and India and
focuses on a bio-acoustic and experimental approach in the natural habitat of the respective species. In several
visits to Borneo it became quite obvious to her that agricultural demands gradually degrade the primary forest and
that every conservation effort possible should be immediately taken to conserve and protect the biodiversity of the
