This study analyzes the structure of the mandibular arch musculature in larval, metamorphic, and postmetamorphic anurans of 26 species and makes comparisons with larvae of three caudate and one gymnophione species. Major transformations in early evolution of anuran larvae comprise, for example, the powering of the larval upper jaw cartilages by relocating(More)
Suctorial anuran larvae are highly specialized for living in fast-flowing waters, using their oral disks as adhesive organs to attach to the substrate. The cranial musculoskeletal structure of suctorial larvae of Litoria nannotis, L. rheocola, and Nyctimystes dayi (Hylidae: Pelodryadinae) were compared with congenerics with pond-type larvae (L. caerulea, L.(More)
The larval neurocranium and visceral arches of seven dendrobatid species representing four genera are described, based on cleared-and-stained and serially sectioned specimens. A variety of characters is shared by all seven species. Larval features do not substantiate the assumption of close ranoid affinities of the Dendrobatidae. Instead dendrobatid larvae(More)
This paper studies the exertion of market power in large buyer groups confronting an incumbent monopolist and a potential market entrant in a repeated trade situation. In the experiment, buyer power can either occur as demand withholding when only the incumbent is present in the market, or it can take the form of buying at higher prices from the entrant in(More)
