Studies on the occurrence of protein polymorphism are of importance not only in determining interspecific relationships but also in revealing genetically controlled variants among the populations of the same species. This study deals with the analysis of the isozyme pattern of three dehydrogenases in seven species of Indian frogs. The results correlate with the respective habitats and it is suggested that protein polymorphism is adaptively important and is maintained by natural selection.
