Default Metamorphosis (in cc amphib glossary)

Metamorphosis: A series of postembryonic changes involving structural, physiological, biochemical, and behavioral transformations. In amphibians, these changes are of three main types:

1. Regression of structures and functions that are significant only to the larvae
2. Transformation of larval structures into a form suitable for adult use
3. Development of structures and functions that is essential to the adult.

In most amphibians there is a profound change between larval and adult forms.
