Denis Vieira de Andrade earned his BS in biology and his PhD in zoology, both at the University of Sao Paulo State in Rio Claro, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Since 1997, he has worked at the same institution where he is now an associate professor of animal physiology in the Department of Zoology. His research interests focus on the ecophysiology, natural history, behavior, and conservation of amphibians and reptiles. Catherine R. Bevier earned her BS in biology at Indiana University and PhD in ecology at the University of Connecticut. She is an associate professor of biology and has been at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, since 1999. Bevier's current research focuses on behavioral and physiological ecology of amphibians and investigations of the complex relationship between frogs and the pathogenic chytrid fungus. Jose Eduardo de Carvalho graduated with a BS in biological sciences at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he also earned his MS and PhD in animal physiology. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Sao Paulo State University in Rio Claro, Brazil, and at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He is currently a professor of comparative animal physiology at the Federal University of Sao Paulo (UNIFESP), Campus Diadema, conducting research in ecophysiology and comparative biochemistry.
