The effect of artificial lights on amphibians has
not been well studied. However, most frogs are nocturnal, so it is
expected that lights have an effect on breeding, feeding, and
predator avoidance, as occurs in most other species of animals.
Artificial lights have been found to alter nest hiding behavior and
possibly calling, affecting their breeding success. Some frogs
gather at lights to forage, making them more susceptible to
dehydration and predators, (as well as cars).
