All evolutionary biologists are familiar with Robert Trivers, but many do not know that some of his most important work was conducted on Anolis lizards. This work–as well as the rest of Trivers’ life–is featured in his just-published memoirs, Wild Life: Adventures of an Evolutionary Biologist. I had the good fortune to review the book for Current Biology. You can read my review, but the short story is: a fascinating book about one of the great figures–and characters–of modern evolutionary biology. And in case you’re wondering, it was the publishers who put a collared lizard, instead of an anole, on the cover. Available on Amazon for $12.99!
