Bucciarelli G, Green D, Shaffer H, Kats L. Individual fluctuations in toxin levels affect breeding site fidelity in a chemically defended amphibian. Proc Biol Sci. 2016;283: pubmed publisher
..These results provide us a novel dimension to chemical defence phenotypes in nature and their ecological consequences, potentially requiring a re-evaluation of the coevolutionary dynamics of predation pressure on toxin-laden organisms. ..

Bucciarelli G, Shaffer H, Green D, Kats L. An amphibian chemical defense phenotype is inducible across life history stages. Sci Rep. 2017;7:8185 pubmed publisher
..Therefore, it is crucial that inducible variation be accounted for when considering ecological dynamics of chemically defended animals and coevolutionary predator-prey and mimic-model relationships. ..
