Abstract: We present different polynomial functions to describe gastric evacuation rates of alpine newt larvae in relation to temperature and body dry weight. Gastric evacuation rates increased with increasing temperature and decreased with increasing body weight during early development. Gastric evacuation rates measured in the laboratory were low compared to those estimated under field conditions.
