Changes in body measurements during growth of the newts triturus vulgaris triturus alpestris and triturus cristatus amphibia urodela


Changes in body measurements during growth of the newts triturus vulgaris triturus alpestris and triturus cristatus amphibia urodela



Vestnik Ceskoslovenske Spolecnosti Zoologicke 47(1): 51-67



An analysis was made of 588 specimens of the smooth newt, T. vulgaris (L., 1758), 336 specimens of the Alpine newt, T. alpestris (Laur., 1768) and 84 specimens of the warty newt, T. cristatus (Laur., 1768), in order to disclose relative changes during growth in tail length, width and length of the head, distance between anterior and posterior extremity with respect to body length and relative growth in head length with respect to its width. Growth in species investigated is allometric. The suitability of individual biometrical indexes for taxonomy is discussed.
