Embryonic temperature tolerances of five species of Japanese brown frogs, Rana japonica, R. tsushimensis, R. dybowskii, R. okinavana and R. tagoi, were reported. High-temperature limits at which a half of morulae or blastulae died before stage 25 (completion of operculum) are 33 C in R. japonica, 31 C in R. tsushimensis, 29 C in R. dybowskii and R. okinavana, and 25 C in R. tagoi. Low-temperature limits are above 4 C in R. japonica and below 4 C in R. tagoi. High-temperatue limits seem to correlate not with air temperature or shape of egg mass but with higher limit in the temperature fluctuation of breeding waters and egg diameter.
July 31, 2017 Due to the end of the Yahoo!JAPAN OpenID service, My J-STAGE will end the support of the following sign-in services with OpenID on August 26, 2017: -Sign-in with Yahoo!JAPAN ID -Sign-in with livedoor ID * After that, please sign-in with My J-STAGE ID.
