Colleagues Say No

ACTSCI-66WYRR

Why were Kauffeld’s colleagues unable to accept his claim that the coughing frog should be crowned as a new species?


The Coughing Frog

A

Kauffeld did not have a big enough population of the coughing frogs to support his claim.

B

Kauffeld’s expertise was in studying large mammals, so his ideas about a new amphibian species were not accepted.

C

Kauffeld lacked the proper experimental evidence to support his claim.

D

Other researchers wanted the frog to be treated with antibiotics first to cure its cough.
