  1. ncbi Phenotypic lability and the evolution of predator-induced plasticity in tadpoles
    J Van Buskirk
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, Switzerland
    Evolution 56:361-70. 2002
    ..Thus, I found that differences in lability of traits were useful for predicting the magnitude of plasticity only for fundamentally different kinds of characters...
  2. ncbi Influence of tail shape on tadpole swimming performance
    J Van Buskirk
    Department of Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 48109, USA
    J Exp Biol 203:2149-58. 2000
    ..Thus, predator-induced tadpoles are less vulnerable to predation for reasons other than enhanced swimming performance...
  3. ncbi Delayed costs of an induced defense in tadpoles? Morphology, hopping, and development rate at metamorphosis
    J Van Buskirk
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, Switzerland
    Evolution 55:821-9. 2001
    ..These results focus attention on other costs of the induced phenotype, as well as alternative explanations for plasticity that do not rely on direct fitness trade-offs...
  4. ncbi The change in quantitative genetic variation with inbreeding
    Josh Van Buskirk
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Evolution 60:2428-34. 2006
    ..However, the importance of drift-induced genetic variation in conservation or evolutionary biology is questionable, in part because inbreeding depression usually accompanies inbreeding...
  5. ncbi Body size, competitive interactions, and the local distribution of Triturus newts
    Josh Van Buskirk
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    J Anim Ecol 76:559-67. 2007
    ..cristatus consumed the smallest species. 5. These findings suggest that species interactions during the larval stage cannot explain distribution patterns of same- and different-sized Triturus...
  6. doi Non-interactive multiple predator effects on tadpole survival
    Oscar Ramos
    Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    Oecologia 169:535-9. 2012
    ..These results were largely predictable based on the natural history of the predators and are encouraging for attempts to model communities as assemblages of interacting species...
  7. pmc A threefold genetic allee effect: population size affects cross-compatibility, inbreeding depression and drift load in the self-incompatible Ranunculus reptans
    Yvonne Willi
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Switzerland
    Genetics 169:2255-65. 2005
    ..We conclude that self-incompatibility systems do not necessarily prevent small populations from suffering from inbreeding depression and drift load and may exacerbate the challenge of finding suitable mates...
  8. pmc Predator-induced changes in metabolism cannot explain the growth/predation risk tradeoff
    Ulrich K Steiner
    Zoological Institute, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 4:e6160. 2009
    ..This suggests that the tradeoff between avoiding predators and growing rapidly is not caused by changes in metabolic rate, and must be sought in other behavioural or physiological processes...
  9. pmc Genomic compatibility occurs over a wide range of parental genetic similarity in an outcrossing plant
    Yvonne Willi
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Proc Biol Sci 272:1333-8. 2005
    ..Optimal genetic similarity encompassed a broad range of within-population and between-population crosses. This pattern of genomic compatibility has important implications for the evolution of mating systems and mate choice...
