Denoël, M., Drapeau, L., Oromi Farrús, N., & Winandy, L. (2019). The role of predation risk in metamorphosis versus behavioural avoidance: a sex-specific study in a facultative paedomorphic amphibian. Oecologia, 189(3), 637-645.
Evolutionary theory predicts the evolution of metamorphosis over paedomorphosis (the retention of larval traits at the adult stage) in response to life in unfavourable habitats and to the benefits of dispersal ...

The hydroperiod of breeding habitats imposes a strong selection on amphibians and pond-breeding species usually exhibit a high degree of plasticity in the duration of larval period. However, the potential for ...

Paedomorphosis is a major evolutionary process that bypasses metamorphosis and allows reproduction in larvae. In newts and salamanders, it can be facultative with paedomorphs retaining gills and metamorphs ...
Denoël, M. (2003). How do paedomorphic newts cope with lake drying? Ecography, 26(4), 405-410.
Paedomorphosis, in which adult individuals retain larval traits, is widespread in newts and salamanders. Most evolutionary models predict the maintenance of this life-history trait in favourable aquatic ...
Denoël, M., & Poncin, P. (2001). The effect of food on growth and metamorphosis of paedomorphs in Triturus alpestris apuanus. Archiv für Hydrobiologie, 152(4), 661-670.
The effect of food level on growth and metamorphosis of paedomorphs was examined in an experimental replicated design in Triturus alpestris apuanus. Paedomorphosis concerns the retention of larval ...
