genetic basis. However, some differences in trait means and genotype by environment interactions were detected between the novel environment in which the experiment was conducted (Missouri), and the ancestral habitat of this species (Brazil). Therefore...
Amphibian metamorphosis and juvenile terrestrial performance following chronic cadmium exposure in the aquatic environment
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
degradation and amphibian declines. Manipulative experiments were conducted to investigate the performance (i.e., growth, survival) of amphibians that metamorphose from chemically-contaminated aquatic breeding sites. The heavy metal cadmium (Cd) was selected...
