  Supporting the Sustainable Management of Amphibian and Reptile Biodiversity

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can
change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Anon.


Author's Biography


The conservation breeding of two foot-flagging frog species from Borneo, Staurois parvus and Staurois guttatus. Doris Preininger, Anton Weissenbacher, Thomas Wampula, and Walter Hödl. Amphibian and Reptile Conservation 5(3):45-56(e51).

Doris Preininger


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 rainforest.
