In natural populations on Isle Royale, tadpoles of the chorus frog live in small pools on the shore of Lake Superior. Hatchling densities are high and sufficient to cause competitive impact on survivorship, growth, and development. The temporal and spatial pattern of egg laying indicates that tadpoles in many of the pools belong to single sibships. I calculated average coefficients of relationship among tadpoles under the assumption that eggs laid together are the products of the same breeding… CONTINUE READING
