Near-shore island lizard fauna shaped by a combination of human-mediated and natural dispersal

Jeanne Robertson, Patricia Salerno, Lauren Chan, W. Chris Funk & Gregory Pauly
Aim: Island biotas provide opportunities to study colonization and adaptation to novel environments. Islands, especially near-shore islands, may have a long record of human habitation such that some lineages result from human-assisted introductions. Here, we combine phylogenetic analyses with fossil data and historical specimen records to reconstruct colonization histories, characterize among-island divergence, and assess the role of humans in shaping the evolutionary history of lizards inhabiting a near-shore island archipelago. Location: Channel Islands and adjacent...
