Table S1. Nitrogen (δ15N‰ Air) and carbon (δ13C‰ VPDB) stable isotope values for insects and the tissues of G. excubitor frogs. Control frogs (n = 3) were fed insects with background isotope values, while labelled frogs (n = 5) were fed insects labelled with δ15N-leucine and δ13C-palmitic acid.; Supplemental Figure. Association of developmental stage and δ15N (A) and δ13C (B) of embryos exposed to an isotopically enriched insect diet. Non-linear relationship of 15N with developmental stage suggests that protein demand by embryos and protein transfer by the mother varies across embryonic development.
