Clinging performance on natural substrates predicts habitat use in anoles and geckos

Amber Wright, Stevie Kennedy-Gold, Emily Naylor, Robyn Screen, Carla Piantoni & Timothy Higham
1. For arboreal lizards, the ability to cling or adhere to the substrate is critical for locomotion during prey capture, predator escape, thermoregulation, and social interactions. Thus, selection on traits related to clinging is likely strong. 2. Correlations between morphology, performance, and habitat use have been documented in arboreal lizards, providing a framework for using functional traits to predict habitat use in the field. 3. We tested the hypothesis that clinging performance predicts habitat use...
