7 Terrific Toad Survival Tactics

They're everywhere! Toads have been able to populate most of the world's continents in the relative blink of an eye. Now scientists have figured out seven factors responsible for the toads' success. Toads (officially, Bufonidae) originated in the tropics of South America, but fanned out across most of the world over just about 10 million years ó a relatively short period of time, evolutionarily speaking. The roughly 500 known toad species are incredibly diverse, both in characteristics and in habitat type and range. "Some amphibian groups are distributed all over the world, and others are not," said evolutionary biologist Ines Van Bocxlaer of Belgium's Vrije Universiteit Brussel. "We wondered why toads expanded their range while others (like poison arrow frogs) stayed in one area?" So the researchers retraced the evolutionary history of various toad traits and tried to identify the ones that correlated with major expansions in a species' range. They narrowed down their list of traits to seven prized qualities that together seemed to allow species to colonize a larger area than before.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Terrorist Threats

Democratic societies offer freedoms and liberties that are sometimes taken for granted. Citizens are able to speak their minds without fears of repercussions, have relatively open access to information, and go about their daily businesses without an invasion of privacy. However these freedoms come at a price; namely that nefarious individuals acting within these democracies can prey on the systemís vulnerabilities. Democratic societies are becoming increasingly complex machines with many intricate moving parts. These same machines can be brought to a standstill if someone throws a monkey wrench into its exposed structure. This list by no means is an attempt to support acts of terror, or to give a knock against democracy. Its purpose is to explore the most pressing terrorists threats democracies face, and perhaps engage in a discussion on where the line stands between freedom and security.
