Here at the Glor Lab we’re in the second year of a major anole breeding experiment. Specifically, PhD student Anthony Geneva is completing the second generation of an experimental study of reproductive isolation that was the subject of his poster at the Evolution meetings this past summer (see this previous post on Anole Annals for more on this poster). I’m happy to report that egg production thus far has been steady and that the we’ve had hatchling emerging for a few weeks now. In the photo above, you can see a baby just emerging from an egg in the foreground and other eggs individually incubating in vermiculite in the background. We’ll have more to report on this experiment in the coming weeks. We’re particularly interested in sharing information on how we’ve encouraged breeding this year by manipulating light and humidity, and in learning how others might have tried to do the same.
- Anole Annals is written and edited by scientists who study Anolis lizards. Our goal is to disseminate new scientific research, natural history anecdotes, and a wide range of other anole-related information. To find posts on a particular topic, type a key word into the search box.
