Data from: Ecological specialization and morphological diversification in Greater Antillean boas

Robert G. Reynolds, David C. Collar, Stesha A. Pasachnik, Matthew L. Niemiller, Alberto R. Puente-Rolon & Liam J. Revell
Colonization of islands can dramatically influence the evolutionary trajectories of organisms, with both deterministic and stochastic processes driving adaptation and diversification. Some island colonists evolve extremely large or small body sizes, presumably in response to unique ecological circumstances present on islands. One example of this phenomenon, the Greater Antillean boas, includes both small (<90 cm) and large (4 m) species occurring on the Greater Antilles and Bahamas, with some islands supporting pairs or trios of...

Data from: Phenotypic shifts in urban areas in the tropical lizard Anolis cristatellus

Kristin M. Winchell, Robert Graham Reynolds, Sofia R. Prado-Irwin, Alberto R. Puente-Rolón & Liam J. Revell
Urbanization is an important dimension of global change, and urban areas impose significant natural selection on species within them. Although many species persist in urban areas, little research has investigated whether populations have adapted to urbanization. Even less work has considered tropical regions, which have recently experienced dramatic urban growth. In the present study we focused on the neotropical lizard, Anolis cristatellus. We tested whether lizard ecology and morphology differ between urban and natural areas...
