New Perspectives on Lizard Foraging Behavior

A new book is out! Behavior of Lizards: Evolutionary and Mechanistic Perspectives features a chapter on foraging behavior by Martha Muñoz and colleagues. The researchers integrate sensory ecology and evolutionary perspectives to discuss how lizards find and acquire food. Lizards are exceptionally diverse where foraging strategies are concerned: some are visual foragers, whereas others use chemoreception or thermosensation or, in a few cases, auditory cues. How does it all fit together in the lizard tree of life? Read to find out!
