Interactive effects of sex and temperature on locomotion in reptiles.

Abstract

Males and females from several animal taxa differ in locomotor performance traits such as sprinting and jumping. These performance dimorphisms may be explained at least partially by sexual differences in physiology or morphology. In ectotherms such as reptiles, however, thermal ecology places an additional constraint on realized locomotor performance. I… (More)
