Metamorphosis is thought to provide an adaptive decoupling between traits specialized for each life‐history stage in species with complex life cycles. However, an increasing number of studies are finding that larval traits can carry‐over to influence postmetamorphic performance, suggesting that these life‐history stages may not be free to evolve independently of each other. We used a phenotypic selection framework to compare the relative and interactive effects of larval size, time to hatching… Expand
