Swamp Thing by Joseph Spindle

When many people think of frog reproduction and development, they think of aquatic eggs hatching out aquatic tadpoles which develop into terrestrial adults. However, the reproductive and–especially–developmental patterns of frogs is incredibly diverse, with much of this diversity found in tropical regions. Many frogs do not lay their eggs in water, some tadpoles develop away from water, and some frogs do not have tadpoles at all. In this talk, I will discuss the many ways that different groups of frogs reproduce and develop.

Michael Keck grew up in Fort Worth, Texas. He received his Ph.D. in Quantitative Biology from the University of Texas at Arlington, where he studied snake ecology and physiology. He has been a biology professor at Grayson College since 2001. He lives with his wife, Trish, and their dogs in Savoy, Texas.
