The Lesser Antilles, in the Eastern Caribbean, were long considered to have only two species in the genus Iguana Laurenti 1768: the Lesser Antillean iguana Iguana delicatissima, which is endemic to parts of the Lesser Antilles, and the Common green iguana Iguana iguana, which also occurs throughout Central and South America. No subspecies are currently recognised. However, herpetologists and reptile collectors have pointed out strong physical differences between some of the island populations… 

Painted black: Iguana melanoderma (Reptilia, Squamata, Iguanidae) a new melanistic endemic species from Saba and Montserrat islands (Lesser Antilles)

The authors call for action to conserve Iguana melanoderma in Saba and Montserrat and for further research to investigate its relationship to other melanistic iguanas from the Virgin Islands and coastal islands of Venezuela.

Testing for hybridisation of the Critically Endangered Iguana delicatissima on Anguilla to inform conservation efforts

The degree of hybridisation between Anguilla’s Iguana species is assessed firstly using morphological characteristics and then genetic analysis to validate the genetic integrity of morphologically identified I. delicatissima population, and that of a population on the nearby island of Îlet Fourchue, St Barthélemy.

Origin of the green iguana (Iguana iguana) invasion in the greater Caribbean Region and Fiji

Invasive populations of green iguanas (Iguanidae: Iguana iguana) are widely established beyond their native Central, South American, and Lesser Antillean range in various islands of the Pacific,

Population estimate, natural history and conservation of the melanistic Iguana Iguana population on Saba, Caribbean Netherlands

Intraspecific diversity is among the most important biological variables, although still poorly understood for most species. Iguana iguana is a Neotropical lizard known from Central and South

Predation of a Juvenile Iguana rhinolopha (Squamata: Iguanidae) by Basiliscus plumifrons (Squamata: Corytophanidae) in the Costa Rican Rainforest

Abstract Lizards play key roles in ecosystems where they are prey for a wide variety of predators, including snakes, other lizards, mammals, birds, and invertebrates. The Green Basilisk (Basiliscus

A Distribution Model for the Green Iguana, Iguana iguana (Linnaeus, 1758) (Reptilia: Iguanidae), in Puerto Rico

Habitat modeling and mapping efforts for Green Iguanas in Puerto Rico should be repeated periodically as new distributional records are obtained and the land-cover changes to provide land managers an updated distribution of this species in the islands.

A genus-wide analysis of genetic variation to guide population management, hybrid identification, and monitoring of invasions and illegal trade in Iguana (Reptilia: Iguanidae)

Overall, this work provides a reference for Iguana microsatellite loci in order to allow standardization and comparison among studies, aiding broader assessment of research and conservation hypotheses.

Forensic Genetic Analyses of Melanistic Iguanas Highlight the Need to Monitor the Iguanid Trade

The geographic origin of melanistic iguanas (Iguana iguana) is assessed, which indicates that both animals carry a haplotype known to originate from the islands of Saba and Montserrat, populations taxonomically proposed to be Iguana melanoderma.

Urgent International Action Needed to Tackle Illegal Pet Trade in Caribbean Iguana Populations

Lizards in the Neotropical genus Iguana are heavily traded for the international pet trade, with unusual colour morphs and rare species commanding high prices. Recent research aimed to understand the

Illegal trade of morphological distinct population prior to taxonomic assessment and elevation, with recommendations for future prevention

A novel case where an insular endemic form of the Iguana iguana complex has entered the international commercial trade, likely stimulated by efforts to elevate the form taxonomically.
