Like most North American amphibians, the striped newt has a biphasic life cycle (i.e., aquatic egg and larval stages, as well as terrestrial juvenile/eft, and adult stages, and requires wetlands for reproduction. Striped newts, and a few other salamanders, are capable of adding an alternative life history pathway called paedogenesis; i.e.,larvae develop gonads and are able to reproduce without leaving the water. Paedomorphs can still transform into terrestrial forms at later time. Paedomorphosis affords benefits...
