Ecomorphometric Analysis of Diversity in Cranial Shape of Pygopodid Geckos

Gurgis, G P; Daza, Juan D.; Brennan, Ian; Hutchinson, Mark; Bauer, Aaron M; Stocker, Michelle R.; Olori, J C


Pygopodids are elongate, functionally limbless geckos found throughout Australia. The clade presents low taxonomic diversity (∼45 spp.), but a variety of cranial morphologies, habitat use, and locomotor abilities that vary between and within genera. In order to assess potential relationships between cranial morphology and ecology, computed tomography scans of 29 species were used for 3D geometric morphometric analysis. A combination of 24 static landmarks and 20 sliding semi-landmarks were...[Show more]
