Evolution. The origins and evolutionary relationships between the three main groups of amphibians is hotly debated. A molecular phylogeny based on rDNA analysis dating from suggests that salamanders and caecilians are more closely related to each other than they are to frogs and that the divergence of the three groups took place in the Paleozoic or early .

Editorial de la Universidad de Puerto Rico (San Juan, Puerto Rico, , USA). pp. Hardcover. ISBN Herpetologial Review 31(1): Amphibians are vertebrate tetrapods (“four limbs”), and include frogs, salamanders, and caecilians. The term “amphibian” loosely translates from the Greek as “dual life,” which is a reference to the metamorphosis that many frogs and salamanders undergo and the unique mix of aquatic and terrestrial phases that are required in their life cycle.

Salientia includes frogs and toads, and their close fossil relatives. The closest living relatives of the Salientia are the other amphibians, salamanders and caecilians. Frogs outnumber both of these groups substantially; as of Maythere are living species of caecilians, living salamanders, and living species of frogs.

The Salientia (Latin salere (salio), "to jump") are a phylogeny of the Salientia book group of amphibians that includes the order Anura, the frogs and toads, and various extinct proto-frogs that are more closely related to the frogs than they are to the Urodela, the salamanders and newts. The oldest fossil "proto-frog" appeared in the early Triassic of Madagascar, but molecular clock dating suggests their origins Class: Amphibia.

Etymology and taxonomy. The use of the common names "frog" and "toad" has no taxonomic a classification perspective, all members of the order Anura are frogs, but only members of the family Bufonidae are considered "true toads".
The use of the term "frog" in common names usually refers to species that are aquatic or semi-aquatic and have smooth, Clade: Salientia.

The phylogeny of Sminthillus limbatus and the status of the Brachycephalidae (Amphibia Salientia) Article in Journal of Zoology (3). Abstract. The 27 species of the aquatic frog family Pipidae are currently arranged in four genera: Xenopus (15 species), Hymenochirus (four species), and the poorly known genus Pseudhymenochirus (one species) occur in Africa; Pipa (seven species) is found in South America and lower Central America.
Despite extensive work on the biology of Xenopus from Cited by: Crown-group holocephalans (Chimaeroidei) comprise only three extant clades, the callorhinchids, chimaerids, and rhinochimaerids, the latter two being sister groups (Didier, ; Heinicke et al., ; Fig.
).However they are characterized by a large number of unique soft-tissue characters that are unfortunately irrelevant to the identification of fossil members of these clades, which.
That dissertation, “Phylogeny of the Salientia” () was soon recognized as a major contribution to herpetology. The classification was mainly based on such anatomical characters as the vertebral articulation and the configuration of the thigh muscles, instead of the more superficial characters previously used.
