... Reaction norms can be used to simultaneously quantify both the level of phenotypic flexibility across an environmental gradient (i.e. reaction norm slope) and the phenotypic expression of a trait in the population-average environment (i.e. reaction norm intercept). Reaction norm components of several...

Here, we maintained a naturally omnivorous lizard, Liolaemus ruibali , on a mixed diet of 50% insects and 50% plant material, or a plant-rich diet of 90% plant material. We compared parameters of digestive performance, gut morphology...
