Population divergence of developmental thermal optima in Swedish common frogs, Rana temporaria

Abstract:

Growth rate, like any other trait, should be under balancing selection in natural populations, with selection adjusting mean growth rate in a population in relation to its site-specific costs and benefits. In the present study, we tested for differences in thermal growth optima between a northern and a southern region of Rana temporaria by rearing tadpoles in three different temperatures in the laboratory (10, 15 and 20 °C). Because of the rapid increase in post-melt temperature at high latit...
