Wildlife research materials and interesting materials related to the widely used and economically beneficial species of marsh frog (Pelophylax ridibundus) were collected for the eco-faunistic study of batraxofauna and herpetofauna. Materials have been collected for molecular-genetic research from different areas of the region to investigate the molecular-genetic and environmental characteristics of this species, to investigate the interrelationship of cryptic forms and their role in the formation of populations of food.
