THE INFLUENCE OF NATURAL INCUBATION ENVIRONMENTS ON THE PHENOTYPIC TRAITS OF HATCHLING LIZARDS
Laboratory studies have shown that incubation environments can affect mor- phological and behavioral phenotypes of hatchling lizards, but the relevance of this result to natural populations remainsExpand

Longterm e ff ects of incubation temperatures on the morphology and locomotor performance of hatchling lizards ( Bassiana duperreyi , Scincidae )
The phenotypes of hatchling reptiles are known to be affected by the thermal environments they experience during incubation, but the evolutionary and ecological significance of this phenotypicExpand

Movements, Mating, and Dispersal of Red-Sided Gartersnakes (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) from a Communal Den in Manitoba
Abstract We studied the spring emergence of red-sided gartersnakes (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) from a large communal den in Manitoba to clarify the context in which courtship and mating occur.Expand

THE INFLUENCE OF NEST TEMPERATURES AND MATERNAL BROODING ON HATCHLING PHENOTYPES IN WATER PYTHONS
Previous work on phenotypic plasticity in hatchling reptiles has dealt almost exclusively with lizards and turtles from temperate zone habitats, in taxa where the only maternal control overExpand

Nesting lizards (Bassiana duperreyi) compensate partly, but not completely, for climate change.
Species in which ambient temperatures directly determine offspring sex may be at particular risk as global climates change. Whether or not climate change affects sex ratio depends upon theExpand

A novel foraging mode in snakes: browsing by the sea snake Emydocephalus annulatus (Serpentes, Hydrophiidae)
Summary 1 Ecologists often ascribe considerable importance to traits that are widespread within a specific lineage but rarely seen in other kinds of organisms. Unfortunately, such hypothesesExpand

SOME LIKE IT HOT: EFFECTS OF FOREST CLEARING ON NEST TEMPERATURES OF MONTANE REPTILES
Global climate change may affect the upper elevational limits of distribution of montane organisms, especially if those limits are set directly by temperature. Oviparous (egg-laying) reptiles areExpand

The effect of short-term weather fluctuations on temperatures inside lizard nests, and on the phenotypic traits of hatchling lizards
Can short-term stochastic variation in local weather conditions modify the thermal conditions inside lizard nests, and thus (potentially) the developmental rates, hatching success, and phenotypicExpand
