Identifying traits that enable lizard adaptation to different habitats

Flávia Lanna, Guarino Colli, Frank Burbrink & Bryan Carstens
Aim: Species adapt differently to contrasting environments, such as open habitats with sparse vegetation and forested habitats with dense forest cover. We investigated colonization patterns in the open and forested environments in the Diagonal of Open Formations and surrounding rain forests (i.e., Amazon and Atlantic Forest) in Brazil, tested whether the diversification rates were affected by the environmental conditions, and identified traits that enabled species to persist in those environments. Location: South America, Brazil. Taxon:...
