      This data was collected for a study of the nightly and seasonal vocal activity of the frog communities in a tropical savanna habitat.

      Automated acoustic recordings were taken at multiple frog breeding sites near Townsville, north Queensland, Australia. Recorders were set to record continuously each night. Data on the chorusing activity of cane toads was collected using automated call recogniser software and a graphic visualisation tool for displaying long-duration audio recordings.
