Modelling species distributions without using species distributions: the cane toad in Australia under current and future climates
Accurate predictions of the potential distribution of range-shifting species are required for effective management of invasive species, and for assessments of the impact of climate change on nativeExpand

Comparative Analysis of Cutaneous Evaporative Water Loss in Frogs Demonstrates Correlation with Ecological Habits
Most frog species show little resistance to evaporative water loss (EWL), but some arboreal species are known to have very high resistances. We measured EWL and cutaneous resistance to evaporationExpand

THE ADAPTIVE SIGNIFICANCE OF REPTILIAN VIVIPARITY IN THE TROPICS: TESTING THE MATERNAL MANIPULATION HYPOTHESIS
Abstract Phylogenetic transitions from oviparity to viviparity in reptiles generally have occurred in cold climates, apparently driven by selective advantages accruing from maternal regulation ofExpand

Seasonal Shifts in Body Temperature and Use of Microhabitats by Galapagos Land Iguanas (Conolophus Pallidus)
Seasonal differences in the body temperatures (T,,) of free-ranging Galapagos land iguanas (Conolophlns pallidus) were detected by temperature sensitive telemetry transmitters. Midday 7,/'s ofExpand

Seasonal Changes in Thermoregulation by the Frillneck Lizard, Chlamydosaurus Kingii, in Tropical Australia
The frillneck lizard Chlamydosaurus kingii is an arboreal lizard that is a conspicuous component of the reptile fauna of the wet-dry tropics of northern Australia during the wet season. During theExpand

The Physiological Cost of Pregnancy in a Tropical Viviparous Snake
Abstract During pregnancy, the metabolic rate of females may increase above basal levels to support metabolically active tissues and developing embryos. In mammals, this energetic cost of supportingExpand
