This investigation reports the effect of corticosterone on the growth of Bufo melanostictus tadpoles. Test tadpoles of experiment I (T-I), maintained in 1g/ml solution of corticosterone, were 2.39mm shorter than controls by day 11. Test tadpoles of experiment II (T-II), maintained in 5g/ml solution were 4.32mm shorter than their counterparts. Growth inhibition was dose related and became significant (p<0.05) when the larger amount was administered.
