...: This Review highlights our understanding of postnatal neurogenesis in reptiles in comparison to mammals. Research in reptiles will help to address the mechanisms of postnatal neurogenesis and place it within a functional and evolutionary context. Neurogenesis Reptiles Lizards Neuronal proliferation...

Maximum bite force is significantly greater using leather as the biting substrate compared with a metal substrate. Less-forceful bites on metal are likely due...

...Eric J. McElroy; Kristin L. Hickey; Stephen M. Reilly SUMMARY Foraging mode has molded the evolution of many aspects of lizard biology. From a basic sit-and-wait sprinting feeding strategy, several lizard groups have evolved a wide foraging strategy, slowly moving through the environment using...

...Tobias Wang; David R. Carrier; James W. Hicks ABSTRACT The extent to which lizards ventilate their lungs during locomotion is controversial. Direct measurements of airflow across the nostrils suggest a progressive reduction in tidal volume and minute ventilation with increased running speed, while...

...C. T. Farley; M. Emshwiller ABSTRACT Nocturnal geckos can walk on level ground more economically than diurnal lizards. One hypothesis for why nocturnal geckos have a low cost of locomotion is that they can perform mechanical work during locomotion more efficiently than other lizards. To test...
