Amphibians: Vary enclosure humidity to simulate seasonal changes in the wild using humidifiers, foggers/misters or artificial rain
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
For some species, breeding is seasonal and can be triggered by longer periods of sunlight, changing temperatures or increased/decreased rainfall which can change the humidity of their environment. It may be possible to trigger breeding by simulating these cues within an enclosure. Studies investigating the effect of varying artificial rainfall to simulate seasonal changes in the wild are discussed in 2.11.
