Warmer winters reduce frog fecundity and shift breeding phenology, which consequently alters larval development and metamorphic timing.

Abstract

One widely documented phenological response to climate change is the earlier occurrence of spring-breeding events. While such climate change-driven shifts in phenology are common, their consequences for individuals and populations have rarely been investigated. I addressed this gap in our knowledge by using a multi-year observational study of six wood frog… (More)
