Abstract: Breeding habitats of 10 amphibian species were investigated and classified by their physical characteristics. The relative larval abundance of the species was analysed in 15 temporary ponds, resulting in positive correlations with the area of the ponds, whereas negative correlations were found between species diversity and the persistence of the ponds. Regarding the use of their habitats, one species was not correlated with any one, and among the others, two groups of species were differentiated because of their negative associations.
