Abstract:Breeding migration of amphibians is an important component of the breeding activities. Whether an individual could complete its breeding migration would effect directly on its breeding success. It was of important significance for the breeding migration research of amphibian to understand the demands of a species or a population to breeding habitat, to make clear the breeding activities profile, and to design and manage scientifically the breeding wetlands and buffer zone for amphibians in practical conservation activities. There were numerous researches on amphibian migration internationally, but little domestically. This review summarized the breeding migration phenology, migration mode, migration direction and orientation and migration distance, attempting to explore the general rules of migration time, direction and its impact factors, mechanisms of orientation, and to analyze the differences of migration distance among the different groups and sexes of amphibians. Finally, common research methods of amphibian breeding migration were introduced, accompanied by pros and cons analysis.
