González-Maya urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:FDF44245-F3C3-4A11-8ED7-E01ABF937D2A Phytotelmata are microhabitats used for shelter by many anuran species. Understanding anuran-microhabitat relation-ship is important for their conservation as it could notably affect host-pathogen interactions (i.e. chytrid fungus-amphibians), and could help us to understand their habitat disturbance responses. Herein, we studied spatial and temporal patterns of phytotelmata selection by anurans at Las Tablas Protected Zone, Costa Rica. Also,...
