Abstract: A multivariate analysis was performed on a set of data which contained records on the capture rates outside the breeding season, under varying environmental conditions of the two native British toads, Bufo bufo and Bufo calamita . The data were taken from a study by Mathias ( 1971 ). Although statistical relationships within the data set were generally weak, results of the analysis suggest that activity outside the breeding season of Bufo bufo showed the stronger dependence on the recorded environmental parameters. In particular, a striking correlation was found to exist between capture rates of Bufo bufo and temperatures recorded at 30 cm below ground earlier the same day.
