Action: Amphibians: Provide visual barriers for territorial species
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- No evidence was captured for the effects of visual barriers for territorial species.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
A captive breeding setup may house multiple pairs of amphibians. In territorial species this could potentially cause aggression between individuals which may negatively impact breeding success. By providing barriers which allow individuals or pairs to avoid visual contact with each other, this aggression may be reduced or eliminated.
