Journal Articles
J Exp Biol (2012) 215 (22): 3965–3972.
Published: 15 November 2012
...Niall Crawford; Thomas Endlein; W. Jon P. Barnes SUMMARY Tree frogs use adhesive toe pads for climbing on a variety of surfaces. They rely on wet adhesion, which is aided by the secretion of mucus. In nature, the pads will undoubtedly get contaminated regularly through usage, but appear to maintain...

...Ingo Scholz; W. Jon P. Barnes; Joanna M. Smith; Werner Baumgartner SUMMARY Knowledge of both surface structure and physical properties such as stiffness and elasticity are essential to understanding any adhesive system. In this study of an adhesion surface in the tree frog, Litoria caerulea White...

...Makoto Takada; Miyoko Kasai SUMMARY The short-term effect of prolactin on the skin of the adult tree frog Hyla arborea japonica was investigated using current-fluctuation analysis. Basolateral application of ovine prolactin (10 μg ml -1 ) (1) increased the amiloride-blockable short-circuit current...
