Castilla, A. M., Van Damme, R. & Bauwens, D.: Field body temperatures, mechanisms of thermoregulation and evolution of thermal characteristics in lacertid lizards. Nat. Croat., Vol. 8, No. 3., 253–274, 1999, Zagreb. We discuss three aspects of the thermal biology of lacertid lizards. First, we provide an overview of the available data on field body temperatures (Tb), the thermal sensitivity of various performance functions and selected body temperatures in different species of lacertid lizards… CONTINUE READING
