Abstract: Specimens of Rana pipiens were subjected to different environmental conditions in order to determine the role of light and temperature on the amount and pattern of fat utilization, as well as the effects of these factors on the reproductive condition of the species. Temperature influences the amount of fat utilization; however, both light and temperature influence the pattern of fat utilization and the reproductive condition. A correlation was found between the amount and pattern of fat utilization or deposition and the reproductive condition of individuals.
