The influence of non-climate predictors at local and landscape resolutions depends on the autecology of the species: Autecology informs SDM scale and predictor choice.
Within these elements teeth are by far the most informative in terms of taxonomy, systematics or autecology. Most of the extinct species of Chondrichthyes are described on the basis of isolated teeth (see for example monographs of Cappetta, 1987, 2012; Ginter et al., 2010 and references therein).

Our results were similar to those for high populations of Rana tigrina tadpoles (DASH; HOTA, 1980), for Litoria aurea tadpoles (BROWNE et al., 2003) and for Litoria moorei (MATSON et al., 2010), where the reduced values of average weight, survival, and increase in weight variation of the lots were related to the autecology of the species, such as competition for food, and social factors, like competition for space and hierarchy.
