ABSTRACT
During the period March - May 2013, the serum concentration of glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, total lipids, albumins, globulins and total proteins in the frog Rana ridibunda Pall were analyzed. For this research were used 40 individual frogs, taken in two different water springs with different water temperature, in Terdevc village (water temperature 7.9 °C - 19.7°C) and Banja village (24.7°C - 29.0°C) of Malisheva. Analyses were conducted in the frog serum using standard biochemical methods, ready reagents from the firm Elitech and modern equipment from Screen plus company. The research results show higher values of concentration of the parameters analyzed in the frog’s serum taken in warm water spring of Banja compared with the frogs of cold water taken in the village Terdevc. These changes were observed during the spring season (March-May) and in some cases were significantly higher (P<0.05, P<0.01, P<0.001, respectively). The highest significances values were observed in particular during the May. Statistical calculations of the results were performed using software ANOVA and student t - test. Results of this study indicate that temperature is a crucial factor that determines the state of the organism, its metabolic level respectively. Since frogs are poikilotherm organisms, these changes probably can be ascribed the metabolic activity of the organism in relation to the temperature of the surrounding environment. Therefore, changes in the analyzed biochemical parameters derived as a consequence of change in the temperature regime and it is a good indicator to show seasonal rhythm of the body.
