Gliding treefrog breeding aggregation

A massive breeding aggregation of gliding treeforgs, Agalychnis spurrelli in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. The population I study have explosive breeding aggregations where tens of thousands of adults come to breed at a large pond and leave behind hundreds of thousands of eggs of which most die from desiccation, predation, and fungal infection. I study how their development and the environment affect their behavior.
