In addition, larvae of several species have been shown to accelerate metamorphosis in response to habitat desiccation; i.e., they exhibit phenotypic plasticity in development time (Bufo americanus, Wilbur 1987; Ambystoma talpoideum, Semlitsch and Wilbur 1988; Scaphiopus couchii, Newman 1988, 1989, Morey and Janes 1994; Hyla pseudopuma, Crump 1989b).
