Morphological and life-history responses of anurans to predation by an invasive crayfish: an integrative approach

Ana L. Nunes, Germán Orizaola, Anssi Laurila and Rui Rebelo. Ecology and Evolution. Volume 4, Issue 8, pages 1480–1490, April 2014. This study focuses on predator-induced plasticity in morphology and life-history traits of an anuran community invaded by an exotic crayfish predator around 25 years ago. We found among-species variation in the ability to respond to novel predators, and our results show that some of the prey species within the invaded community do show adaptive defenses against a recently established predator.
