Longevity in Salamandra infraimmaculata from Israel with a partial review of life expectancy in urodeles


Longevity in Salamandra infraimmaculata from Israel with a partial review of life expectancy in urodeles



Salamandra 43(1): 21-34



ISSN/ISBN: 0036-3375

A population of Salamandra infraimmaculata was monitored on Mt. Carmel, during 25 annual breeding seasons. A large number of salamanders was recaptured several times (up to 40 times in males) over the years at the same site, i.e. near or at ponds where salamanders transform. Some visited the site for several years (17 years in females, 19 years in males). Since these salamanders visit the breeding ponds only as adults and they become sexually mature only when reaching the age Of 3-4 years, their age can be estimated. Consequently, longevity under natural conditions was 22-23 years in males and 20-21 years in females. The various methods used in estimating longevity in amphibians are discussed and a partial listing of longevity in urodeles is provided.
