Abstract: The distribution in ponds of five species of anuran larvae has been studied in relation to the aquatic vegetation. According to the vegetal species composition, ponds have been classified in five zones. The innermost zone in which little or no vegetation grows was poorly frequented by tadpoles, which were mainly distributed throughout the other more vegetated zones. Some preferences for a specific zone have been found for several species.
