Color Polymorphism in Pacific Tree Frogs

Abstract

Crosses between green and non-green Hyla regilla suggest that green color is determined by genes at two loci; each loci must have a dominant gene. Red is the result of a recessive gene and brown a dominant gene. The frequency of frogs with each color varies in different populations.
