In species that exhibit long-term territoriality, high homing performance after tadpole transport can be assumed, but experimental evidence is lacking, and the underlying orientation mechanisms are unknown. We conducted a field translocation experiment to test whether male Allobates femoralis, a dendrobatid frog with paternal extra-territorial tadpole transport, are capable of homing after experimental removal, as well as to quantify homing success and speed. Translocated individuals showed a very high homing success for distances up to 200 m and successfully returned from up to 400 m. We discuss the potential orientation mechanisms involved and selective forces that could have shaped this strong homing ability.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Ringler, Max</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ringler, Eva</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Brandl, Hanja B.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-12-03T15:12:55Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pašukonis, Andrius</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Ringler, Eva</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>The Homing Frog : High Homing Performance in a Territorial Dendrobatid Frog Allobates femoralis (Dendrobatidae)</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Ringler, Max</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/47817"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Hödl, Walter</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Pašukonis, Andrius</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Mangione, Rosanna</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-12-03T15:12:55Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2013-09-01</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:creator>Mangione, Rosanna</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
