Are pheromones key to unlocking cryptic lizard diversity?

Zozaya, Stephen M.; Higgie, Megan; Moritz, Craig; Hoskin, Conrad


Animals use mating traits to compete for, attract, and choose mates. Because mating traits influence mate choice, the divergence of mating traits between populations can result in reproductive isolation. This can occur without associated morphological divergence, producing reproductively isolated cryptic species that are visually indistinguishable. Thus, identifying the mating traits in morphologically conservative groups is key to resolving diversity and speciation processes. Lizards contain...[Show more]
