  • The average size of yearlings that had completed their metamorphosis from overwintered tadpoles is significantly larger than the size of yearlings from tadpoles of the current year that completed their metamorphosis (ref: Ivan2017)
  • The fertile hybrid of P. ridibundus and P. lessonae is called P. esculentus (ref: Wiki)


  • tadpoles are assumed to differ from frogs by del_M only
  • males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
