This chapter describes both analytic and measurement techniques used in the study of the environmental physiology of amphibians. The first section explores the benefits and pitfalls of utilizing phylogenetic methods to analyze and interpret physiological and morphological data with respect to phylogeny. The remainder of the chapter describes common techniques used for the measurement of temperature, water and ion exchange, cardiovascular physiology, and metabolism.

Keywords:   comparative method, two-species comparisons, phylogenetic methods, phylogenetic corrections, ancestral traits, water balance, solute balance, thermoregulation, cardiovascular methods, metabolic methods
