It is hoped that this study will provide a platform for ongoing research into the Uropeltidae, including the description of cryptic species, clarifying the phylogenetic placement of some remaining taxa, and quantifying the range of intra- and inter-specific variation in crucial morphological characters.
The Role of Predation in Shaping Crocodilian Natural History
Even for such large and superficially invulnerable taxa such as crocodilians, the avoidance of predation appears to have been a significant selective force on behavior, morphology, and ecology.
Trade in live reptiles, its impact on wild populations, and the role of the European market
Genus-level phylogeny of snakes reveals the origins of species richness in Sri Lanka.
Frogs under friendly fire: how accurately can the general public recognize invasive species?
Australian Freshwater Crocodiles (Crocodylus johnstoni) Transport Their Hatchlings to the Water
Remote video cameras recorded eight instances of nest excavation and parental transport of offspring to the water by Australian freshwater crocodiles inhabiting Lake Argyle in northwestern Australia.
The (non) impact of invasive cane toads on freshwater crocodiles at Lake Argyle in tropical Australia
The Lake Argyle crocodile population may not warrant immediate active management to reduce the impact of cane toads, and a trend for higher impact in more arid areas suggests that Western Australian crocodile populations may be at high risk.
It’s a dog-eat-croc world: dingo predation on the nests of freshwater crocodiles in tropical Australia
The results suggest that distinctive attributes of the lakeside landscape alter predator guilds and fashion unique predator–prey interactions in freshwater crocodiles inhabiting Lake Argyle.
Does the invasive shrub Ulex europaeus benefit an endemic Sri Lankan Lizard
It is found that C. nigrilabris use habitats non-randomly and prefer Ulex bushes over native and other introduced vegetation in disturbed habitats, and restoring the ecological functions of Ulex should be considered in planning future eradication programs.
