Besides the natural springs, thermal waters were tapped and are used at filling the summer pools. The characteristic of the thermal waters is the high and constant temperature, no matter of the temperature in the air. In thermal habitats the temperature of the water is constant, higher than 20 ºC independently of the seasonal temperature changes. The high and constant temperatures induce modifications in the biology of the amphibians that populate them. In the Romanian literature there aren’t any studies referring to the influence of thermal waters upon the amphibians…”
