A Method for Constructing an Adjustable Platform to Obtain Lateral Photographs of Larval Anurans
Digitally photographing specimens and using computer software to obtain morphological measurements is a commonly used technique in larval anuran research. Lateral photographs of specimens can be used to obtain measures such as snout-vent length, body height, tail length, tail height, tail musculature length, and tail musculature height (Dayton et al. 2005; Lardner 2000; Relyea 2001). However, obtaining quality lateral photographs of larval anurans can be difﬁ cult due to their general body plan (a rounded body and laterally compressed tail).
