Running in cold weather: morphology, thermal biology, and performance in the southernmost lizard clade in the world (Liolaemus lineomaculatus section: Liolaemini: Iguania).
The integration or coadaptation of morphological, physiological, and behavioral traits is represented by whole-organism performance traits such as locomotion or bite force. Additionally, maximumExpand

Chasing the Patagonian sun: comparative thermal biology of Liolaemus lizards
The importance of the thermal environment for ectotherms and its relationship with thermal physiology and ecology is widely recognized. Several models have been proposed to explain the evolution ofExpand

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

BEHAVIORAL RESPONSES OF BUFO ARENARUM TADPOLES TO ODONATE NAIAD PREDATION
—In the presence of predators, anuran tadpoles often exhibit behavioral plasticity, which in turn reduces predation risk. We evaluated indirect effects of odonate larva predation on activity of BufoExpand

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

Effect of body mass and melanism on heat balance in Liolaemus lizards of the goetschi clade
ABSTRACT The body temperature of ectotherms depends on the environmental temperatures and behavioral adjustments, but morphology may also have an effect. For example, in colder environments, animalsExpand

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
