A B S T R A C T. o Very little is known about diel variation in body temperature among nocturnal lizards. Some nocturnal lizards thermoregulate during the day, and body size plus behavior may be related to the amount of thermal inertia. Lizards of the species Homonota borelli and H. darwini were either exposed to three different situations a) a heated retreat site (never below than 34oC), b) a retreat with a temperature lower than 28-30oC, and c) where lizards were allowed to choose between a… 

The lizard that never sleeps: activity of the pampa marked gecko Homonota uruguayensis

TLDR
Hamonota uruguayensis showed diurnal and nocturnal activity in the four seasons, with periods of daily activity varying significantly between all seasons in a cyclic and multimodal pattern, with no significant relation with environmental temperatures.

Home range of Homonota uruguayensis (Squamata, Phyllodactylidae) at Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil / Área de Vida do Gecko Homonota uruguayensis (Squamata, Phyllodactylidade)

The home range distribution of the lizard Homonota uruguayensis was studied from May 2010 to January 2011 on a rocky outcrop in the municipality of Rosario do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil.

How morphology and thermal ecology relates to diurnal microhabitat use and selection across seasons in two habitats of the nocturnal Tarentola delalandii from Tenerife

TLDR
It is suggested that in relation to their body sizes, geckos seem to select their shelters considering specific microhabitat characteristics surrounding them that may provide thermoregulatory and/or antipredator profits.

Iheringia, Série Zoologia

TLDR
Morphological remarks for larva and pupa of this species when compared to other members of the genus remain limited, demanding further studies with other species.

Refuge Use in a Patagonian Nocturnal Lizard, Homonota darwini: The Role of Temperature

TLDR
Analysis of refuge use by the thigmothermic gecko Homonota darwini in the Patagonia of Argentina shows the importance of the thermal quality of refuges for reptiles living in extreme environments.

Cool Geckos: Does Plesiomorphy Explain Morphological Similarities between Geckos from the Southern Cone?

TLDR
The results indicate that Homonota and Garthia share a great majority of both external and internal characters and are nearly indistinguishable on morphological grounds, and suggest the symplesiomorphic retention of many morphological states linked to miniaturization and terrestriality in Garthia and Hom onota, and concomitant differentiation of the American Leaf-Toed Geckos.

Termorregulación diurna y nocturna de la lagartija Phyllodactylus bordai (Gekkota: Phyllodactylidae) en una región semiárida del centro de México

Los reptiles nocturnos dependen de la calidad termica del habitat para regular eficientemente su temperatura corporal y realizar sus actividades biologicas diurnas y nocturnas. Previamente, se ha

Population density of the spur-thighed tortoise Testudo graeca declines after fire in north-western Africa

TLDR
The negative response of T. graeca to fire should be considered in conservation planning of this species in north-western Africa in a future scenario of changes in fire regime.

¿QUÉ IMPLICACIONES ECOFISIOLÓGICAS TIENE LA ACTIVIDAD NOCTURNA EN REPTILES “DIURNOS”?: UNA REVISIÓN

TLDR
This review is the first to summarize published studies that document nocturnal activity events in reptiles previously considered exclusively diurnal and discuss the ecophysiological implications from the perspective of optimal activity temperature ranges, tolerance thresholds, activity periods, cathemerality, voluntary hypothermia and its importance in the face of global climate change.

Potential biodiversity map of lizard species in Southern Patagonia: environmental characterization, desertification influence and analyses of protection areas

TLDR
The objective was to elaborate a map of potential biodiversity of lizards based on habitat suitability maps of individual species in Santa Cruz (Argentina), and to analyze desertification influence and the representativeness of the current network of protected areas on the lizard biodiversity.

THERMAL BIOLOGY OF THE GECKO TARENTOLA BOETTGERI: COMPARISONS AMONG POPULATIONS FROM DIFFERENT ELEVATIONS WITHIN GRAN CANARIA

TLDR
Comparing body temperatures selected in a thermal gradient and thermal tolerances among six populations of the gecko Tarentola boettgeri from the island of Gran Canaria found no significant variation in mean selected body temperature among the six populations, although it did vary over an 8-h repeated-measurement period.

Selected Body Temperature in Diurnal and Nocturnal Forms of Ptyodactylus (Reptilia: Gekkoninae) in a Photothermal Gradient

TLDR
The selected body temperatures of the three Israeli forms of Ptyodactylus are closely associated with their different daily activity patterns and with their distinct ecological distributions.

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.

DO NOCTURNAL ECTOTHERMS THERMOREGULATE? A STUDY OF THE TEMPERATE GECKO CHRISTINUS MARMORATUS

TLDR
The extent and behavioral mechanisms of temperature regulation in the nocturnal, rock-dwelling marbled gecko Christinus marmoratus during spring and summer are investigated, suggesting that noctual lizards are capable of regulating body temperature to an extent that is comparable to that of diurnal lizards.

Temperature preference in geckos: Diel variation in juveniles and adults

TLDR
It is hypothesize that a preference for higher Tbs toward the end of photophase initiates the thermoregulatory behavior observed in fieldactive geckos, and facilitates higher body temperatures during activity in early scotophase.

Behavioral Thermoregulation Increases Growth Rate in a Nocturnal l.izard

TLDR
Leopard geckos seem to be typical among lizards in requiring a diurnal heat source for maximal growth, and this result provides a physiological explanation for the observation that some nocturnal lizards thermoregulate in burrows during the day, and may have implications for the biogeography ofNocturnal ectotherms.

Reproductive tactics of sympatric gekkonid lizards with a comment on the evolutionary and ecological consequences of invariant clutch size

  • L. Vitt
  • Biology, Environmental Science
  • 1986
TLDR
A summary of data on offspring size of additional gekkonids reveals a tight correlation between female size and offspring size, and it is suggested that selection for optimal offspring size may be a partial determinant of female body size in species with invariable clutch size.

Australian Geckos Do Not Display Diel Variation in Thermoregulatory Behavior

TLDR
Preferred body temperature (T,) is the Tb maintained by an organism free from all ecological constraints and is measured in a laboratory thermal gradient that provides a full range of equally accessible thermal environments.

Hot Rocks and Not-So-Hot Rocks: Retreat-Site Selection by Garter Snakes and Its Thermal Consequences

Studies of behavioral thermoregulation ofectotherms have typically focused only on active animals. However, most temperate-zone ectotherms actually spend more time sequestered in retreats (e.g.,
