Anolis nitens tandai Ávila-Pires, 1995 is a diurnal lizard, frequently found on leaf litter of the humid tropical rainforests from Central and Occidental Amazon, in the states of Acre and Amazonas, Brazil (Ávila-Pires 1995; Vitt et al. 2001). On 12 October 2001 at 09:20 h, we collected one specimen of A. nitens tandai (Figure 1) in Parauá (02o50’38’’ S, 55o10’54’’ W), municipality of Santarém, State of Pará, Brazil. The individual was observed on the ground in a gallery forest, and it was… Expand

Anolis chrysolepis Duméril and Bibron, 1837 (Squamata: Iguanidae), Revisited: Molecular Phylogeny and Taxonomy of the Anolis chrysolepis Species Group
This work uses the mitochondrial gene ND2 to estimate phylogenetic relationships among putative subspecies of A. chrysolepis and assesses the congruence between molecular and morphological datasets to evaluate the taxonomic status of group members. Expand
Lagartos (Squamata: Lacertilia) em áreas de floresta e de pastagem em Espigão do Oeste, Rondônia, sudoeste da Amazônia, Brasil
The collecting curve gathering the three methods used showed that after the eighth month of sampling no new species could be added, which suggests that the community was well sampled, and the adequacy of using two or more methods for sampling communities is indicated. Expand
Are lizards feeling the heat? A tale of ecology and evolution under two temperatures
A large (861 species) global dataset of lizard body temperatures was used, and the mean annual temperatures across their geographic ranges were examined to examine the relationships between body andmean annual temperatures. Expand
Evolution and ecology of lizard body sizes
Small size seems to promote fast diversification of disparate body plans, and the absence of mammalian predators allows insular lizards to attain larger body sizes by means of release from predation and allows them to evolve into the top predator niche. Expand
Filogenia molecular e taxonomia do grupo Anolis chrysolepis Duméril & Bibron, 1837 (Squamata, Polychrotidae)
A Amazonia, considerada a maior floresta tropical continua do mundo e diversos mecanismos tem sido propostos para tentar explicar a sua alta diversidade biologica, estudos moleculares recentes indicam that a diversificacao de especies de vertebrados de florestas tropicais provavelmente precede o periodo pleistocenico.

Lizards of Brazilian Amazonia (Reptilia:Squamata)
A zoogeographical analysis based on the combined distribution maps of the various species shows a main division in Amazonia of a western and an eastern fauna, and a southwestern group is also recognised and, although defined by a smaller number of species, a Guianan group. Expand
Life on the Leaf Litter: The Ecology of Anolis nitens tandai in the Brazilian Amazon
Microhabitats containing lizards were slightly warmer than a random set of microhab itats suggesting that the lizards selected relatively warm sites within a relatively cool forest habitat, but avoidance of treefalls suggests lizards do not seek out the warmest available microhabitat. Expand
