with body size and with a measure of matiing success obtained from an earlier study. Body size is significantly correlated with age, but there is much variation in age among animals having the same body size. Mating success was not significantly cor- related either with size or age when males had equal

of males are located more posteriorly than are those of females of the same body size. Males display a longer vascular component than females but there is no sexual dimorphism in size of the avascular component. Thus, males generally have longer lungs than do females at all body sizes. With

(Iverson and Smith, 1993 ; Ashton, Burke and Layne, 2007 ; Lovich et al., 2015 ). Nevertheless, maternal body size is thought to be one of the major determinants of geographic variation in clutch size and, in some cases egg size (Rowe, 1994 ; Iverson et al., 1997 ; Rowe, Coval and Campbell, 2003

Despite experiencing similar climatic conditions, populations differed in mean body size: populations using still water bodies for oviposition were larger body-sized than those using brooks. One semi-natural pond

1. Introduction The decision and ability to successfully settle after departure from a population is frequently correlated to phenotypic traits such as body size (Holekamp, 1986 ; Verhulst et al., 1997 ), behavioural variation (Fraser et al., 2001 ; Dyer et al., 2009 ) and metabolic rate
