MORPHOLOGICAL AND BEHAVIORAL PLASTICITY OF LARVAL ANURANS IN RESPONSE TO DIFFERENT PREDATORS
Many organisms can adjust to a changing environment by developing alter- native phenotypes that improve their fitness. Our understanding of phenotypic plasticity is largely based upon observationsExpand

THE IMPACT OF INSECTICIDES AND HERBICIDES ON THE BIODIVERSITY AND PRODUCTIVITY OF AQUATIC COMMUNITIES
Pesticides constitute a major anthropogenic addition to natural communities. In aquatic communities, a great majority of pesticide impacts are determined from single- species experiments conductedExpand

Selection for phenotypic plasticity in Rana sylvatica tadpoles
The hypothesis that phenotypic plasticity is an adaptation to environmental variation rests on the two assumptions that plasticity improves the performance of individuals that possess it, and that itExpand

THE LETHAL IMPACT OF ROUNDUP ON AQUATIC AND TERRESTRIAL AMPHIBIANS
The global decline in amphibian diversity has become an international en- vironmental problem with a multitude of possible causes. There is evidence that pesticides may play a role, yet fewExpand

COMPETITOR-INDUCED PLASTICITY IN TADPOLES: CONSEQUENCES, CUES, AND CONNECTIONS TO PREDATOR-INDUCED PLASTICITY
Phenotypically plastic responses to environmental change are typically com- partmentalized by the type of environmental cues that cause the induction (e.g., temperature, light), but different typesExpand

  • 1 April 2005
The decline in amphibians across the globe has sparked a search for the causes, and recent evidence suggests a connection with pesticides. However, for most pesticides, tests on amphibians are rareExpand

Amphibian species richness across environmental gradients
Large-scale field patterns are a fundamental source of inferences on processes responsible for variation in species richness among habitats. We examined species richness of larval amphibianExpand

Ecological consequences of phenotypic plasticity.
Phenotypic plasticity is widespread in nature, and often involves ecologically relevant behavioral, physiological, morphological and life-historical traits. As a result, plasticity alters numerousExpand

FINE‐TUNED PHENOTYPES: TADPOLE PLASTICITY UNDER 16 COMBINATIONS OF PREDATORS AND COMPETITORS
It is now well appreciated that most organisms can alter their phenotypes when faced with environmental variation. Decades of empirical investigations have doc- umented hundreds of examples ofExpand
