Performance capacity, fighting tactics and the evolution of life–stage male morphs in the green anole lizard (Anolis carolinensis)
The evolution of alternative male phenotypes is probably driven by male–male competition for access to reproductive females, but few studies have examined whether whole–organism performanceExpand

Relations between microhabitat use and limb shape in phrynosomatid lizards
With the exception of the well-documented case for anoline lizards, recent studies have found few evolutionary relationships between morphology and habitat use in lizards despite clear-cutExpand

Correlations between habitat use and body shape in a phrynosomatid lizard ( Urosaurus ornatus ) : a population-level analysis
Recent ecomorphological studies have shown that the predicted correlations between morphology and ecology on broad taxonomic levels are often obscured when comparing more closely related groups.Expand

A comparison of habitat use, morphology, clinging performance and escape behaviour among two divergent green anole lizard ( Anolis carolinensis ) populations
We measured available and actual habitat use, morphology, escape behaviour and clinging ability in a large sample(N = 242) of green anoles, Anolis carolinensis, in a habitat consisting primarily ofExpand

Abstract People often overestimate the impact future events will have on their happiness. People may also show a retrospective impact bias, overestimating the impact of past events on theirExpand

Hormones, sexual signals, and performance of green anole lizards (Anolis carolinensis)
The evolutionary processes that result in reliable links between male signals and fighting capacity have received a great deal of attention, but the proximate mechanisms underlying such connectionsExpand

Morphology and histochemistry of the hyolingual apparatus in chameleons
We reexamined the morphological and functional properties of the hyoid, the tongue pad, and hyolingual musculature in chameleons. Dissections and histological sections indicated the presence of fiveExpand

Functional implications of supercontracting muscle in the chameleon tongue retractors.
Chameleons capture prey items using a ballistic tongue projection mechanism that is unique among lizards. During prey capture, the tongue can be projected up to two full body lengths and may extendExpand

Intraspecific correlations among morphology, performance and habitat use within a green anole lizard ( Anolis carolinensis ) population
We examined habitat use, morphology, jumping and clinging ability for 403 juvenile, female and male green anole lizards, Anolis carolinensis, in a population in south-eastern Louisiana. We sought toExpand

Scaling of morphology, bite force, and feeding kinematics in an iguanian and a sclerosglossan lizard
Although scaling studies have become increasingly common in the literature, relatively few studies have examined the feeding behavior in terrestrial vertebrates. This is an important point as most ofExpand
