Group Structure and Stability in Social Aggregations of White's Skink, Egernia whitii
Most lizards display relatively simple social systems, but more complexand stable social aggregations appear to be common in one lineage ofAustralian skinks, the Egernia Group. Previous studies on this lineagehave focused on species inhabiting crevices in large and disjunct rockyoutcrops. Here, we describe the social organization of White’s skink,Egernia whitii, a burrowing species that inhabits rocky habitats in south-eastern Australia. We examined social group size, composition andstability...[Show more]
