Oviposition site selection influences adult reproductive success as well as offspring fitness. Between 2007 and 2009 we studied oviposition site selection of the rice frog (Fejervarya limnocharis), one of the most abundant frogs in China, on Taohua Island and the nearby mainland in eastern China. The distance to the nearest road affected oviposition site selection both on Taohua island and the mainland. On the mainland, vegetation coverage also has positive effects on oviposition site selection. We suggest that human disturbance and predator pressure affect rice frog oviposition site selection at both sites.
