Taricha granulosa represented less than 8% of the newt carcasses collected during those years, which represents a significant difference in mortality between the two newt species ([chi square] = 119.
Toxicity of dangerous prey: variation of tetrodotoxin levels within and among populations of the newt Taricha granulosa.
For example, the interactions between tritons, Taricha granulosa, and snakes, Thamnophis sirtalis (Brodie, Ridenhour and Brodie, 2002), and between moths, Greya politella, and woodland star Lithophragma parviflorum (Thompson and Pellmyr, 1992) present evidence of evolution for only one of the interacting species.
In this paper, we report on a study of variation in limb morphology in the salamandrid Taricha granulosa.
Although reports of salamanders in tidal habitats in the Pacific Northwest are rare, Ferguson (1956) found Taricha granulosa (Rough-skinned Newts) in the tidal area of a stream in southern Oregon, and we also found a large breeding group (over 60 individuals) of this species in the same tidal area as the Dicamptodon we observed (Hopkins and Hopkins, pers.
1B]), the amphibian Taricha granulosa, the zebra finch Taeniopygia guttata, human, rat, mouse, and cat (Fig.
Taricha granulosa have been documented to possess TTX in high quantities and are preyed upon by snakes of the genus Thamnophis.
These results suggest that predator avoidance in Taricha granulosa is innate.
However, single clades spanning the PNW from southern Oregon to British Columbia were observed in Taricha granulosa (Rough-skinned Newt; Kuchta and Tan 2005) and Ensatina eschscholtzii (Ensatina; citations within Kuchta and Tan 2005), suggesting that the Columbia River may not be a barrier to dispersal in all salamander species.
