    • Abstract


      Increase in effluent concentration reduced the period of limb bud emergence and tail resorption; it also produced elevated values for length of limbs, tail and body weight of adultR. malabarica. Analysis of variance (Anova test) confirmed that time (week) has pronounced effect on morphological parameters (P < 0·05) than treatment (P > 0·05).
