Chemoreception and mating behaviour of a tropical Australian skink

Scott, Mitchell L.; Llewelyn, John; Higgie, Megan; Hoskin, Conrad; Pike, Kyana; Phillips, Ben L.


In many reptile groups, molecular systematics is currently revealing high levels of cryptic diversity (i.e. genetically distinct lineages that are difficult to distinguish morphologically). One obvious mode for mate discrimination in these cryptic species is chemoreception. We hypothesise that diversity in these groups is not cryptic for pheromones, and mate recognition via chemoreception may be the primary reproductive isolating mechanism. Here, we present a preliminary study of...[Show more]
