In August 2009, we compared the trophic spectrum of syntopic Bombina variegata and Rana temporaria populations from the Bratia Valley in the Iezer Mountains.

The main consumed prey taxa by Rana temporaria is represented by Arahnida, Gastropoda and Hymenoptera. Furthermore, the differences between the size...
