Successful reproduction by any biparentally reproducing metazoan involves not only production of gametes and finding appropriate mates to fertilize them, but also the development of those fertilized gametes to reproductive adults, at least to the extent that the individual replaces itself in the next generation. Clearly, the scope of possible studies on amphibian reproduction is enormous, and any symposium on the subject must be highly selective in the topics covered. Members of the SSAR are largely interested in the comparative aspects of reproduction rather than the general aspects, in the natural history rather than the biochemistry. Presentations at the 1976 symposium share this bias towards certain aspects of amphibian reproduction.
