About this book

The Anolis lizards are a model group from which to study evolutionary ecology: there are more than 150 species dispersed over the islands of the Caribbean, providing innumerable comparisons of physical form and behaviour. Their evolutionary divergence corresponds in geological time with the plate tectonic origins of the islands. Based on empirical work with these lizards, and on the work of others, Roughgarden has, over two decades, developed theoretical models of evolutionary ecology in the field which may well point to new directions in modelling and field biology.
