Post-breeding migrations of newts (Triturus cristatus and T. marmoratus) with contrasting ecological requirements
TLDR
Two newt species with contrasting ecological requirements were radio-tracked after leaving a shared breeding pond in western France, and migration in the direction of a habitat type characterized by trees and underground shelters was favoured over migrations in other directions. Expand
The terrestrial summer habitat of radio-tracked great crested newts (Triturus cristatus) and marbled newts (T. marmoratus)
TLDR
No significant differences among species or ponds were observed in the mean distance that newts moved away from the breeding site, and several (up to ten) untracked newts were found in the refuges of radio-tracked individuals. Expand
Delineation of terrestrial reserves for amphibians: post-breeding migrations of Italian crested newts (Triturus c. carnifex) at high altitude
TLDR
A terrestrial core reserve is proposed extending 100 m from the furthermost terrestrial refuges of newts found with radio-tracking found withRadio-tracking linked with patches of old-growth forest, substantially larger than has been suggested as sufficient in the recent literature. Expand
Strong male/male competition allows for nonchoosy females: high levels of polygynandry in a territorial frog with paternal care
TLDR
It is hypothesized that female polyandry in this species has evolved because of enhanced offspring survival when paternal care is allocated to multiple partners. Expand
Contemporary gene flow and the spatio‐temporal genetic structure of subdivided newt populations (Triturus cristatus, T. marmoratus)
TLDR
A modified Bayesian method is presented to genetically test for descendants between an immigrant and a resident in a nonmigratory life stage and discusses how genotypic data can reveal fine‐scale demographic processes with important microevolutionary implications. Expand
Calls, colours, shape, and genes: a multi-trait approach to the study of geographic variation in the Amazonian frog Allobates femoralis
TLDR
The results obtained depict a complex evolutionary scenario and emphasize the importance of considering multiple traits when disentangling the forces behind allopatric divergence in the Amazonian frog, Allobates femoralis. Expand
The annual number of breeding adults and the effective population size of syntopic newts (Triturus cristatus, T. marmoratus)
TLDR
Concerns are given about the long‐term demographic viability of amphibian populations in situations typical for European landscapes about the observed differences in reproductive life‐histories between the species. Expand
Review: microsatellite markers in amphibian conservation genetics
TLDR
The use of some newly developed analytical tools on newt (Triturus sp.) microsatellite data are demonstrated, practical aspects of using microsatellites for amphibians are discussed, and potential future research directions are outlined. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii: prevalence in species and genotypes of British bats (Pipistrellus pipistrellus and P. pygmaeus).
TLDR
Using a collection of dead/euthanased bats collected from Lancashire, UK, two species of bats were tested using a highly sensitive SAG1-PCR method and the locally large and panmictic gene pool suggests that intraspecies transmission could be applicable. Expand
THE ABUNDANCE OF PREMETAMORPHIC NEWTS (TRITURUS CRISTATUS, T. MARMORATUS) AS A FUNCTION OF HABITAT DETERMINANTS: AN A PRIORI MODEL SELECTION APPROACH
TLDR
The results suggest that in a metapopulation context, deterministic population processes driven by pond succession may be more important than stochastic extinctions and recolonizations of otherwise suitable habitat patches. Expand
