1. To gain insight into the evolution of compensatory growth, we studied the growth patterns of anuran (Rana temporaria) larvae following either a period of exogenous growth depression (food restriction) or a period of endogenous depression (exposure to predators). We also investigated the potential deferred costs that larval compensatory growth could impose on post-metamorphic individuals. 2. Food-deprived larvae exhibited full compensatory growth in response to reduced growth rates caused by… CONTINUE READING
