Reptile' distributions, under the light of their strong dependence on particular temperature requirements, may be constrained as a consequence of climate. The relationship between reptile viviparity and climate yielded two previously proposed hypotheses (the cold climate and the maternal ma - nipulation hypotheses) that together with the climatic variability hypothesis; theoretically link climate, distribution and reproductive mode. The extensive variation in mean environmental temperature…

Do growth rate and survival differ between undisturbed and disturbed environments for Sceloporus spinosus Wiegmann, 1828 (Squamata: Phrynosomatidae) from Oaxaca, Mexico?

—Demography is intimately related to the evolution of the life history of a species, since it describes the patterns of variation in the growth, maturation, reproduction, and survival of an organism

Looking at the past to infer into the future: Thermal traits track environmental change in Liolaemidae*

TLDR
Analysis of the thermal biology of liolaemids found variation in thermal biology was shaped by geography, climate and ecological diversity, and Viviparous Liolaemus have lower Tb s than oviparrous species, whereas Tp is high for both modes of reproduction, a key difference that results in a thermal buffer for viviparou species to cope with global warming.

Latitudinal pattern of the thermal sensitivity of running speed in the endemic lizard Liolaemus multimaculatus.

TLDR
Results show populations of L. multimaculatus adjust thermal physiology to cope with local climatic variations, suggesting that thermal sensitivity responds to the magnitude of latitudinal fluctuations in environmental temperature.

Behavioral compensation buffers body temperatures of two Liolaemus lizards under contrasting environments from the temperate Pampas: a Bogert effect?

TLDR
Two species of Liolaemus used different postural and microhabitat path-selection strategies according to climate, allowing them to buffer changes in Tb, thus suggesting that the Bogert effect may be occurring in these two species.

How mountains shape biodiversity: The role of the Andes in biogeography, diversification, and reproductive biology in South America's most species‐rich lizard radiation (Squamata: Liolaemidae)

TLDR
It is found that the Andes promoted lineage diversification and acted as a species pump into surrounding biomes, and evidence for possible reversals to oviparity is found, an evolutionary transition believed to be extremely rare.

The influence of temperature seasonality on elevational range size across latitude: a test using Liolaemus lizards

Aim Identifying factors that limit species distributions is a fundamental question in ecology with implications for understanding global biodiversity patterns and species responses to environmental

Vulnerability to global warming of the critically endangered Añelo Sand Dunes Lizard (Liolaemus cuyumhue) from the Monte Desert, Patagonia Argentina

The body temperature of lizards is strongly influenced by the thermal quality of microhabitats, exploiting the favourable environmental temperatures, and avoiding exposure to extreme thermal condit...

Termorregulación de la lagartija Liolaemus chacoensis (Squamata: Liolaemidae) durante su ciclo reproductivo, en el Chaco occidental, Argentina

TLDR
The results show that thermophysiological parameters vary in different periods of reproductive cycle and the active microsite selection would be a mechanism in maintenance of body temperature of this species.

Lerista bougainvillii, a case study for the evolution of viviparity in reptiles

TLDR
Comparison with 31 sympatric scincid species showed that L. bougainvillii is not atypical for most of the traits it displays, and climatic unpredictability is lower for viviparous animals, in contradiction to published speculations.

EVOLUTION OF VIVIPARITY: A PHYLOGENETIC TEST OF THE COLD‐CLIMATE HYPOTHESIS IN PHRYNOSOMATID LIZARDS

  • 2013
TLDR
This work investigates the evolution of viviparity in the lizard family Phrynosomatidae using GIS‐based environmental data, an extensive phylogeny, and recently developed comparative methods, finding significant relationships between v Viviparity and lower temperatures during the warmest (egg‐laying) season, strongly supporting the cold‐climate hypothesis.

Evolution of viviparity in squamate reptiles (Sceloporus spp.): a variant of the cold‐climate model

TLDR
Extended egg retention at the highest elevation site would provide two benefits: reduced mortality of eggs and accelerated development relative to that in a nest; these benefits accrue because of the initial shift of nests from deeper to more superficial depths in the soil profile.

Reptilian viviparity in cold climates: testing the assumptions of an evolutionary hypothesis

TLDR
The major assumptions of the “cold climate hypothesis” for the evolution of reptilian viviparity, based on body temperatures of gravid females being higher than soil (nest) temperatures, are supported.

THE ADAPTIVE SIGNIFICANCE OF REPTILIAN VIVIPARITY IN THE TROPICS: TESTING THE MATERNAL MANIPULATION HYPOTHESIS

TLDR
In a laboratory thermal gradient, pregnant death adders from tropical Australia maintained less variable body temperatures than did nonpregnant females, and reproducing female reptiles manipulate the thermal regimes experienced by their developing embryos in ways that enhance the fitness of their offspring.

Evolution of viviparity in horned lizards (Phrynosoma): testing the cold‐climate hypothesis

  • W. Hodges
  • Biology
    Journal of evolutionary biology
  • 2004
TLDR
Viviparity and altitude showed strong phylogenetic signal based on randomization tests and were significantly correlated, while latitude was not correlated with reproductive mode, which partially supports the cold‐climate model, but also suggests that altitude either may be a better predictor of cold temperatures or may been a surrogate for other selective factors important in the evolution of v Viviparity.

DOES VIVIPARITY EVOLVE IN COLD CLIMATE REPTILES BECAUSE PREGNANT FEMALES MAINTAIN STABLE (NOT HIGH) BODY TEMPERATURES?

  • R. Shine
  • Environmental Science
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2004
TLDR
Comparisons of nest and lizard temperatures at sites close to the upper elevational limit for oviparous reptiles suggest that reproductive mode has less effect on mean incubation temperatures than on the diel distribution of those temperatures.

Thermal characteristics of ten Andean lizards of the genus Liolaemus in central Chile

TLDR
There was a lack of association between lizard thermal tolerance and elevation, thus suggesting that these temperature relationships did not set distributional limits within the elevations of the study transect, but some physical factors did influence the thermal biology of Liolaemus.
