    Abstract  Giant water bug Kirkaldyia (=Lethocerus) deyrolli (Belostomatidae: Heteroptera) nymphs consume many individuals of anuran larvae (tadpoles) before they reach adulthood. However, no quantitative data on the number of tadpoles consumed have been made available until now,...

    The treefrog genus Hyla (Anura: Hylidae) consists of at least 31 species found in North America, Central America, Europe, and Asia and is the only genus of hylids that occurs outside the New World. Despite intensive work on the phylogeny of the genus in the past few years, several problems still...

    We assessed the role of habitat structure in the outcome of predation by measuring how aquatic vegetation influences predation rates of water bugs (Belostoma oxyurum (Dufour, 1863), Hemiptera, Belostomatidae) on tadpoles of Dendropsophus minutus (Peters, 1872) and Scinax curicica Pugliese,...

    In order to maximize escaping success, prey may change their predator avoidance behaviors according to their susceptibility. Morphological development during ontogeny may lead to different susceptibility to predators. Consequently, prey may exhibit different predator avoidance strategies...
