Chemical communication is the evolutionary oldest communication system in the animal kingdom. In amphibians, chemical signaling is well documented in caudates, but because anurans spend a lot of energy in acoustic signaling, chemical communication has received much less attention in this order.

However, poison frogs for example use chemical communication during parental care behaviours: They transport their tadpoles to very small water bodies and chemically recognize and avoid cannibalistic tadpoles. In other frog families we investigate proteinacous courtship-pheromones, which have a common evolutionary origin with salamander pheromones - being the oldest known pheromone system in terrestrial vertebrates.
