Invasion of Asian Spiny Toads in Madagascar

Toad appear to be successful invasive species in many places across the planet. The Asian Spiny Toad represents an important invasion to Madagascar where mesopredators are unfamiliar with toad toxins. My work will be to determine the performance of populations of these animals, and compare them to native populations in Asia.
