Dr. Warkentin's research on frog embryos is currently being featured on the New Scientist and Smithsonian Institute websites.   Her research team found that snake-like vibrations induced the eggs to hatch earlier. They suggest that the embryos can distinguish two characteristics of rain – a pattern of low and high frequency vibrations that increase slowly in amplitude.
