Predation cost of conspicuous male coloration in collared lizards (Crotaphytus collaris) : An experimental test using clay-covered model lizards
Animal color patterns are a compromise between sexual selection pressures that increase advantages accrued from conspicuousness, and natural selection pressures that decrease those advantages throughExpand

FORAGING MODES OF SOME AMERICAN LIZARDS: RELATIONSHIPS AMONG MEASUREMENT VARIABLES AND DISCRETENESS OF MODES
We made quantitative field observations of 16 species of American lizards to char- acterize foraging movements and modes. Consistent with previous qualitative assessments and pub- lished data forExpand

Comparison of Methods for Monitoring Reptiles and Amphibians in Upland Forests of the Ouachita Mountains
We compared drift fence arrays (employing pitfalls and double-ended funnel traps), double-ended funnel traps without drift fences, and time-constrained searching as methods for capturing reptiles andExpand

DEMOGRAPHY OF AN URBAN POPULATION OF THE TEXAS HORNED LIZARD (PHRYNOSOMA CORNUTUM) IN CENTRAL OKLAHOMA
The dynamics of reptile populations in urban landscapes are poorly understood. We studied demography of an urban population of the Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum), a species that apparentlyExpand
