  • 22 May 2001
Female Amazon mollies, Poecilia formosa, are a unisexual species that reproduce by gynogenesis. They must coexist and mate with males of other species (usually the mollies Poecilia latipinna orExpand

A Non-Invasive Stress Assay Shows That Tadpole Populations Infected with Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis Have Elevated Corticosterone Levels
Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) is a fungus that causes the disease chytridiomycosis and is associated with widespread amphibian declines. Populations vary in their susceptibility to BdExpand

Innate and Learned Predator Recognition Mediated by Chemical Signals in Eurycea nana
Effective and efficient predator recognition and avoidance are essential for the persistence of prey populations, especially in habitats where non-native predators have been introduced. PredatorExpand

Female choice, male interference, and sperm precedence in the red-spotted newt
Darwin first identified female choice and male‐male competition as forms of sexual selection resulting in the evolution of conspicuous sexual dimorphism, but it has proven challenging to separateExpand

Sequential mate choice by multiply mating smooth newts: females become more choosy
In some species, females sequentially mate with different males within a single mating period, store sperm until the eggs are eventually fertilized, and gain no other resources from the males.Expand

A non-invasive water-borne hormone assay for amphibians
Anthropogenic disturbances have been implicated in the rapid decline of amphibians. Disturbances, such as disease and poor water quality, might cause changes in the physiology of amphibians resultingExpand

  • 4 October 1999
Abstract Individuals may associate with each other due to a variety of selective forces, such as intra- and intersexual selection, and conspecific recognition. Previous studies have concluded thatExpand

Resource quality affects the agonistic behaviour of territorial salamanders
Previous studies suggest that territories of red-backed salamanders, Plethodon cinereus, function as exclusive feeding areas, because prey are limited in availability during rainless periods. To testExpand

A potential role of male and female androgen in species recognition in a unisexual–bisexual mating complex
Hormones play a critical role in the regulation of vertebrate mating behavior, including receptivity, and several components of mate choice. However, less is known about the role of these chemicalExpand

  • 9 November 2004
Prezygotic reproductive isolation and its importance in speciation is traditionally approached from the viewpoint of those events that occur before mating. However, recent interest in spermExpand
