Lizards are larger and retain heat longer in high-altitude habitats

001-2015 University of Granada scientists confirm that ectotherms–like reptiles and amphibians–do follow “Bergmann’s rule”. The 19th-century naturalist posited thatanimals inhabiting colder climates have a larger body size. The study has been published in the prestigious Journal of Evolutionary Biology. Scientists at the University of Granada (UGR) have found that the long-tailed lizard,Psammodromus algirus, is larger… Seguir Leyendo Lizards are larger and retain heat longer in high-altitude habitats
