Zoogeographical Patterns in the Distribution of East African Treefrogs (Anura: Ranidae)

  • Arne Schiøtz

Abstract

The savanna fauna of treefrogs in East Africa includes five distributional patterns: a widely distributed element, an element in the savanna north of the central forest from Cameroun to northern East Africa. an element south of the central forest, an East African lowland fauna. and an element in the dry savanna of Kenya and northern Tanzania.

The forest fauna includes two elements: a western element connected with the Congo Forest block and an eastern element with a distribution similar to the East African lowland savanna fauna.
