How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Editor: Antonieta Labra, Chile. Resumen.-Liolaemus es una de las mayores radiaciones de lagartos con más de 289 especies descritas. Dentro del grupo L. fitzingerii, encontramos la especie L. xanthoviridis, la cual se distribuye en un área alrededor de la meseta de Montemayor en la costa atlántica oriental de la provincia de Chubut, Argentina. Sin e...

Editor: Antonieta Labra, Chile. Resumen.-Liolaemus presenta es de las mayores radiaciones de lagartijas con más de 289 especies descritas. Se sabe poco sobre las características reproductivas y la historia natural de la mayoría de estas especies. Dentro del grupo L. fitzingerii, encontramos la especie L. xanthoviridis, la cual se distribuye en un á...
Chapter
Reptiles have physiological, morphological, and behavioral adaptations that allow them to survive in desert environments, at high altitudes and in cold climates, such as the Patagonia region in southern Argentina. Knowledge of the ecology of Patagonian lizards is limited and fragmentary. The objective of this chapter is to present a synthesis of th...
Article
The local spatial distribution of individual animals is often described in terms of home range (HR), whereas territory traditionally refers to an area defended for exclusive use. The size of the HR is considered an important indicator of the behavioral characteristics of an animal, and it can be influenced by factors such as sex, body size, populat...
Article

Microsatellites are useful markers to address questions of recent gene flow, given that they are relatively neutral to natural selection and show high levels of variability. To date, only one study has used these markers to answer ecological questions in the speciesrich lizard genus Liolaemus. Here, we use microsatellite loci to estimate population...
Article
Color polymorphisms in general and melanism in particular have been the focus of many evolutionary adaptation studies. In lizards of the genus Liolaemus, patterns of melanism have been poorly studied, although they have been used as diagnostic characters for identifying and describing new species. We investigated the relationships between melanism,...

Under the hypothesis that the reproductive activity of a rodent species is influenced by conditions of the environment and by coexistent rodents, we assessed the relationship between environmental variables and reproductive activity of rodents at two spatial scales, field borders and trap sites, during the breeding period (spring, summer and autumn...

Los patrones de coloración y melanismo, han sido foco de estudios evolutivos en una amplia variedad de grupos taxonómicos, incluidas las lagartijas, y generalmente se los encuentra asociados a ciertos aspectos ecológicos. Sin embargo, dentro del género Liolaemus solo se han estudiado algunos aspectos particulares del melanismo en pocas especies del...
