Phylogenetic signal and evolutionary correlates of urban tolerance in a widespread neotropical lizard clade

Kristin Winchell, Klaus P. Schliep, D. Luke Mahler & Liam J. Revell
Urbanization is intensifying worldwide, and while some species tolerate and even exploit urban environments, many others are excluded entirely from this new habitat. Understanding the factors that underlie tolerance of urbanization is thus of rapidly growing importance. Here we examine urban tolerance across a diverse group of lizards: Caribbean members of the neotropical genus Anolis. Our analyses reveal that urban tolerance has strong phylogenetic signal, suggesting that closely related species tend to respond similarly to...
