Local richness and distribution of the lizard fauna in natural habitat mosaics of the Brazilian Cerrado
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
We investigate local lizard richness and distribution in central Brazilian Cerrado, harbouring one of the least studied herpetofaunas in the Neotropical region. Our results are based on standardized samplings at 10 localities, ...
Are corridors, fragment size and forest structure important for the conservation of leaf-litter lizards in a fragmented landscape?
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2009)
To investigate the implications of forest fragmentation for conservation of leaf-litter lizards the importance of fragment size, corridors and forest structure was examined in 20 forest fragments and six localities within ...
Intraspecific chemical recognition in the lizard Liolaemus tenuis
(Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, 1999)
Experimental tests were conducted to determine whether females and males of the tree-dwelling lizard Liolaemus tenuis (Tropiduridae) show intraspecific chemical recognition during breeding and postreproductive seasons. ...
