Băncilă, R. I., Plăiaşu, R., Stănescu, F., Schmidt, B. R., Nae, I., & Denoël, M. (2021). Food level and light conditions affect the antipredator behavior in larvae of a stream-breeding amphibian. Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, 75(2), 36.
Understanding how long-term changes in environmental conditions influence the way that individuals cope with threats is essential in the context of behavioral adaptation to a rapidly changing world. However ...
Manenti, R., Melotto, A., Denoël, M., & Ficetola, G. F. (2016). Amphibians breeding in refuge habitats have larvae with stronger antipredator responses. Animal Behaviour, 118, 115-121.
Antipredator responses are a key determinant of the successful persistence of prey, and behavioural modifications are a frequent antipredator strategy. However, conspecific populations often inhabit ...

Body size is influenced by the interaction of multiple forces, whose effects can determine the occurrence of sexual size dimorphism (SSD). Rensch's rule is the increase of SSD with body size in taxa where ...

Alternative reproductive strategies are widespread in caudate amphibians. Among them, fire salamanders (Salamandra salamandra) usually rely on streams to give birth to aquatic larvae but also use ponds ...
Manenti, R., Denoël, M., & Ficetola, G. F. (2013). Foraging plasticity favours adaptation to new habitats in fire salamanders. Animal Behaviour, 86(2), 375-382.
Predators often show strong plasticity of optimal foraging strategies. A major difference in foraging strategies occurs between sit-and-wait and active predators. Models predict that the efficiency of these ...
Denoël, M. (2004). Répartition, habitat et conservation des amphibiens du Pays de Herve. Bulletin de la Société Herpétologique de France, 111-112, 49-77.
The knowledge of distribution and ecological determinants of species is a prerequisite to their conservation at a time where declines are generalized at a world scale. The aim of this study is to characterize ...

The aim of this study was to approach some aspects of the life-history of the fire salamander Salamandra s. terrestris in a small wood of the Vesdre Valley (Liege Province, Belgium). In 1996, 189 salamanders ...
