The anuran larval guild is characterised by the co-occurrence of distinct species in the same pond at high densities during development with a high niche overlap. For these reasons anuran larvae have been studied widely as a model system for competition. Body size and activity level are considered the most important factors that influence the outcome of competition between tadpoles. As species from temporary ponds normally show higher activity levels in order to achieve rapid growth and thus… CONTINUE READING
