Local Population Differences in Phenotypic Plasticity : Predator-induced Changes in Wood Frog Tadpoles

  title={Local Population Differences in Phenotypic Plasticity : Predator-induced Changes in Wood Frog Tadpoles},
  author={Rick A. Relyea},
Taxa that are divided into separate populations with low levels of interpopulation dispersal have the potential to evolve genetically based differences in their phenotypes and the plasticity of those phenotypes. These differences can be due to random processes, including genetic drift and founder effects, or they can be the result of different selection pressures among populations. I investigated population-level differences in predator-induced phenotypic plasticity in eight populations of… CONTINUE READING
