... frog ( Rana sylvatica ), a northern woodland species that hibernates terrestrially in sites where dehydration and freezing may occur. Wood frogs inhabiting an outdoor enclosure accumulated urea to 65 mmol l -1 in autumn and early winter, when soil moisture was scarce, but subsequently urea levels fell...
