Abstract Since its introduction, Anolis sagrei (Sauria: Polychrotidae) has been replacing native A. carolinensis in Florida and native A. conspersus in Grand Cayman Island as the common anole of urban environments and other open habitats. To assess the likelihood that predation of juvenile native anoles by A. sagrei adults is an important interaction in this process, the propensities for intraguild predation and cannibalism were assessed for A. sagrei and A. carolinensis in Florida and for A… 

The distribution of non-native Anolis lizards on Saint Lucia, Lesser Antilles

Abstract. Anolis lizards are common throughout the islands of the West Indies, often with several species existing in sympatry by demonstrating conspicuous niche separation. With increasing

Ontogenetic habitat shift and risk of cannibalism in the common chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon)

The field experiments showed that juveniles actively avoid the presence of adults by concealment or flight and the risk of cannibalism towards juveniles is an important selective force behind the ontogenetic habitat shift observed in the common chameleon.

Invasive Anolis sagrei on St. Vincent and Its Potential Impact on Perch Heights of Anolis trinitatis

Investigation of the distribution of introduced populations and evaluated possible effects on perch heights of native anoles at a site where all three species occur found little evidence that A. sagrei has affected either native species.

Niche Relationships and Interspecific Interactions in Antiguan Lizard Communities

Results suggest interspecific interactions, most likely due to competition and intraguild predation, are important for structuring Antiguan lizard communities.

Emergent impacts of cannibalism and size refuges in prey on intraguild predation systems

The results indicate that cannibalism and ontogenetic niche shifts can result in behavior-mediated indirect interactions that reduce the impact of the predator on the mortality of its prey and alter the interactions of IGP systems, but also indicate that size is not the sole determinant and that the authors also need to account for the species identity when predicting the dynamics of communities.

Food webs and intraguild predation: community interactions of a native mesocarnivore.

The results support the prediction that, under intraguild predation in terrestrial systems, top predator distribution matches resource availability (resource match), while intermediate predator distribution inversely matches predation risk (safety match).

POPULATION DENSITY AND OVER-WINTERING OF AN EXOTIC LIZARD, THE BROWN ANOLE ANOLIS SAGREI, AND AN EVALUATION OF ANOLE DISTRIBUTION IN LAFOURCHE AND TERREBONNE PARISHES, LOUISIANA

The brown anole Anolis sagrei, native to parts of the Caribbean, was introduced into the United States in the Florida Keys in the late 1800’s and subsequently became established. Since that time, the

ECOLOGICAL RELEASE ANALYZED AMONG INDIVIDUALS, ACROSS TWO GENERATIONS, AND ALONG MULTIPLE NICHE AXES IN ANOLIS CAROLINENSIS

Abstract. A population freed from a constraining interspecific interaction (e.g., competition or predation) may experience niche shifts and expansions. This phenomenon, termed ecological release, is

Presence and Absence of Habitat Shift in Some Widespread Lizard Species

Results imply that animals similar to widespread forms in some niche dimension other than structural habitat are those most likely to cause shift in structural habitat and suggest existence of a competition function with respect to size.

A polygynous mating system in which females seem to fit a 'no cost, neutral-mate-choice' model, and males (in response to sedentary, contiguously distributed females who clutch at weekly intervals over a 4-month period) employ territorial contests within an endurance rivalry as a prime mechanism for mate assortment is documented.

The purpose is to document the ubiquity and importance of intraguild predation and to establish a theoretical framework for its analysis, which is the first synthesis of IGP into a general work.

Diet composition of postmetamorphic bullfrogs and green frogs co-occurring at two study sites in southwest Michigan suggests the opportunity for substantial competition between these species is probably small, and is restricted to individuals of similar body size.

Anolis conspersus selects prey from a wide range of taxa and shows no obvious intraspecific specialization not connected to differences in microhabitat and prey size.

The data are suggestive of microevolutionary adjustment of morphology in the Florida populations over the last 50 years, but a competing hypothesis that invokes multiple undetected introductions is not excluded.
