    R S Wilson
    Department of Zoology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
    J Comp Physiol B 169:445-51. 1999
    ..Although locomotor performance was enhanced at 10 degrees C by a longer acclimation period, this was at the expense of performance at higher temperatures...
  2. ncbi request reprint Thermal acclimation of locomotor performance in tadpoles and adults of the aquatic frog Xenopus laevis
    R S Wilson
    Department of Zoology and Entomology, The University of Queensland, St Lucia, Australia
    J Comp Physiol B 170:117-24. 2000
    ..This is only the second species of amphibian, and the first adult life stage, reported to have the capacity to thermally acclimate locomotor performance...

    R S Wilson
    Physiological Ecology Laboratory, Department of Zoology and Entomology, University of Queensland, Brisbane 4072, Australia
    Physiol Biochem Zool 73:142-52. 2000
    ..peronii was due in part to the increases in tail width (TW) with total length (TW=-1.36L1.66), possibly reflecting the increasing importance of burst swimming performance to survival during larval development...

    ..peronii. Although the hindlimbs of post-metamorphic L. peronii scaled geometrically (body mass exponent approximately 0.33), the hindlimbs of metamorphs showed greater proportional increases with body mass (mass exponents of 0.41-0.42)...

    Physiological Ecology Laboratory, Department of Zoology and Entomology, The University of Queensland, QLD 4072, St Lucia
    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 127:21-8. 2000
    ..As all adult amphibians studied to date are incapable of thermally acclimating locomotor performance, including adults of L. peronii, this acclimatory capacity appears to be absent from the adult stage of development...

    S F Cameron
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
