UV-B radiation is a potent environmental stressor known to influence the survival and performance of amphibian embryos and larvae.

Recent work has shown that other environmental stressors like the presence of predator cues can induce effects in the larval stages of amphibians which then persist beyond metamorphosis to influence the survival and performance of juvenile and adult frogs.

This study will explore the possible influence of early embryonic and larval UV-B exposure on subsequent performance characteristics of juvenile frogs.
