Species inlcuding frogs, butterflies, ladybirds and salmon have complex life cycles in which the larval form transforms abruptly into the adult form in a process known as metamorphosis. Hanna ten Brink asks under which ecological conditions complex life cycles can evolve, combining physiologically structured population models and an adaptive dynamics framework.
