Tadpoles involved in predator-prey interactions were studied in tropical wet forest in Costa Rica under laboratory and field conditions. Larvae of the frog Leptodactylus pentadactylus and naiads of the odonate Pantala flavescens are important predators on larvae of several species of frogs. The predators discriminate the prey on the basis of size and species, but not type of habitat in which predation occurs. A graphical model is proposed to illustrate the relationships between species… CONTINUE READING
