Quantitative genetics of larval life-history traits in Rana temporaria in different environmental conditions.

Abstract

The degree to which genetic variation in a given trait varies among different populations of the same species and across different environments has seldom been quantified in wild vertebrate species. We investigated the expression of genetic variability and maternal effects in three larval life-history traits of the amphibian Rana temporaria. In a factorial… (More)
