Marsh Frogs, Rana ridibunda in Lake Akören -26 August National Park (Afyon): a Preliminary study of Population Size and a Taxonomical Evaluation
The population size of marsh frogs, Rana ridibunda was estimated using the mark-recapture method in Lake Akören Lake. The triple catch method was used to calculate survival and gains in addition to population size. The population sizes were estimated to be 3016 on the second day, and 3532 on the third day. On the basis of morphological analyses, we concluded that Lake Akören is inhabited by Rana ridibunda ridibunda.
