Ecomorphology of Lissotriton montandoni from the Eastern and Western Carpathians
We compared the morphological plasticity of Lissotriton montandoni between the West and Eastern Carpathians, Slovakia. The animals from High Tatra Moutains (the West Carpathians) are bigger than animals from Poloniny National Park (The Eastern Carpathians). The samples from the Tatras originate from higher elevations and cooler climate. Newts (both males and females) which coexist with Alpine Newt in the same habitat (basin) were bigger than newts which were living in the basin as only newt species. The females of newts were generally larger than males.
