Brief Summary

Read full entry

Hyla intermedia, a small green tree frog found throughout Italy, only recently diverged genetically from its ancestors (Rosso et al., 2004a). They generally eat insects (Vignoli et al., 2009), and are preyed on by water snakes (Castellano et al., 2009a). When mating, females choose males by the quality of their calls (Castellano et al., 2007). Some males choose to be satellites and try to steal copulations from more successful males, which increases their otherwise very low fitness (Castellano et al., 2009b).
