Morphological and Behavioral Plasticity of Larval Anurans in Response to Different Predators

  title={Morphological and Behavioral Plasticity of Larval Anurans in Response to Different Predators},
  author={Rick A. Relyea}
Many organisms can adjust to a changing environment by developing alternative phenotypes that improve their fitness. Our understanding of phenotypic plasticity is largely based upon observations from single species responding to two different environments and measuring a single plastic trait. In this study, I examine predator-induced phenotypic plasticity in tadpoles by observing how six species of larval anurans respond to five different predator environments in 11 different traits (seven… CONTINUE READING
