Abstract

The annual cycle of residence in water differed considerably among the three syntopic newts Triturus vulgaris, T cristatus and T. alpestris at a pond in northern Italy. T. vulgaris were resident in water for only short periods, which were used exclusively for reproduction. Adult T cristatus were present in the water for 3-4 months after reproduction, and regained weight during autumn. T. alpestris were present throughout the year; branchiate juveniles and neotenics were more abundant than adults.
