Abstract

Relationships between weight (W: wet or dry weights) and length (L: snout-vent length, head width, tibia length, or total length) were examined for six amphibian species of Japan. The formulae W=a Lb, expressing the relationships between those parameters, varied both among taxa and between larval and adult stages. The results suggest that researchers should make their own regressions for a target species at a given life stage in a given local environment.
