Variation in body size and sexual size dimorphism in the most widely-ranging lizard: testing the effects of reproductive mode and climate

Evgeny Roitberg
Reproductive mode, ancestry, and climate are hypothesized to determine body-size variation in reptiles but their effects have rarely been estimated simultaneously, especially at the intraspecific level. The common lizard (Zootoca vivipara) occupies almost the entire Northern Eurasia and includes viviparous and oviparous lineages, thus representing an excellent model for such studies. Using body length data for >10,000 individuals from 72 geographically distinct populations over the species’ range we analysed how sex-specific adult body size and...
