Risk of predation and behavioural response in three anuran species: influence of tadpole size and predator type
Many species alter their activity, microhabitat use, morphology and life history in response to predators. Predation risk is related to predator size and palatability of prey among others factors. WeExpand

Adaptive plasticity of life-history traits to pond drying in three species of Patagonian anurans
Question: Does pond permanency affect life-history traits of endemic anurans from Patagonia? Background: Amphibians inhabiting North Patagonia breed at ponds that differ strongly in their waterExpand

Thermal Tolerances in Tadpoles of Three Species of Patagonian Anurans
ABSTRACT. Anurans living along the Andes cordillera exploit several thermal environments that vary with altitude and latitude. Studies on moderate and high-elevation tropical species suggestExpand

Toad Tadpole Responses to Predator Risk: Ontogenetic Change between Constitutive and Inducible Defenses
Abstract Rhinella spinulosa is a toad common in rivers, streams, and steppe wetlands where they face a variety of insect predators. Rhinella spinulosa tadpoles are known to be unpalatable toExpand

Predatory insects in lentic freshwater habitats from northwest Patagonia: richness and phenology
The main purpose of this work was to study the richness, phenology and abundance of predatory insects throughout the hydroperiod and how they relate to the environmental parameters in lentic bodiesExpand

Tadpole–odonate larvae interactions: influence of body size and diel rhythm
Several studies have shown that prey and predator body size may affect the outcome of predator–prey interactions. However, few studies have taken in account the changes on predator–prey interactionsExpand

Lack of functional link in the tadpole morphology induced by predators
Abstract Most studies of predator-induced plasticity have focused on documenting how prey species respond to predators by modifying phenotypic traits and how traits correlate with fitness. We haveExpand

Differential vulnerability of Physalaemus pustulosus tadpole size classes to predation by the water spider Thaumasia sp. (Physauridae)
The effect of predatory water spiders on the tadpole size-structure is poorly understood. Here I present a study of the effect of the spider Thaumasia sp. on the survivorship of PhysalaemusExpand

Warming-induced shifts in amphibian phenology and behavior lead to altered predator–prey dynamics
Climate change-induced phenological variation in amphibians can disrupt time-sensitive processes such as breeding, hatching, and metamorphosis, and can consequently alter size-dependent interactionsExpand
