enEnglish
Anura definition: one of the three orders of extant amphibians, comprising the frogs and toads.
Anura definition: An order of the class Amphibia, which includes several families of frogs and toads. They are characterized by well developed hind limbs adapted for jumping, fused head and trunk and webbed toes. The term "toad" is ambiguous and is properly applied only to the family Bufonidae.
Frog definition: An amphibian in the order Anura, which includes the toads. The commonest frog genera are Rana (grass frogs) and Hyla (tree frogs).
Pipidae definition: A family of the order Anura, distinguished by the lack of a tongue. It includes four living genera of aquatic "toads". Two of the most familiar pipids are the popularly called Surinam "toad" (Pipa pipa) and XENOPUS LAEVIS.
Rana esculenta definition: An edible species of the family Ranidae, occurring in Europe and used extensively in biomedical research. Commonly referred to as "edible frog".
Rana pipiens definition: A highly variable species of the family Ranidae in Canada, the United States and Central America. It is the most widely used Anuran in biomedical research.
Ranidae definition: The family of true frogs of the order Anura. The family occurs worldwide except in Antarctica.
