Adult frogs and tadpoles have different macroevolutionary patterns across the Australian continent

Sherratt, Emma; Vidal-Garcia, Marta; ANSTIS, MARION; Keogh, J. Scott

Description

Developmental changes through an animal's life are generally understood to contribute to the resulting adult morphology. Possible exceptions are species with complex life cycles, where individuals pass through distinct ecological and morphological life stages during their ontogeny, ending with metamorphosis to the adult form. Antagonistic selection is expected to drive low genetic correlations between life stages, theoretically permitting stages to evolve independently. Here we describe, using...[Show more]
