Delighted to introduce you to a newly described species, the Yellow-bellied treefrog (Dryophytes flaviventris)! This research is a collaborative effort between researchers of R Korea, DPR Korea and PR China, and it also corrects the relationship between D. immaculatus and D. suweonensis. The three species have diverged about a million years ago and are different based on genomic data, call properties and morphometrics.

I’m leading the Laboratory of Animal Behaviour and Conservation at Nanjing Forestry University, where we focus on a broad range of species. Projects were so far focused on the behavioural ecology and conservation of amphibian species in East Asia, but this is changing and you are welcome to inquire, maintaining a focus on North East Asia.
