I’ve now read the book in which the Toda et al. paper (see previous post) is published. There are several other chapters that discuss the hypothesis that introduced A. carolinensis are responsible for the decline and even extinction of endemic insects on these islands. For example, one chapter notes that dragonflies have decreased greatly and that green anoles can eat two dragonflies a day. Also, note the green anole eating a cicada on the cover! There is also an article that suggests that green anoles may serve as pollinators.
- Anole Annals is written and edited by scientists who study Anolis lizards. Our goal is to disseminate new scientific research, natural history anecdotes, and a wide range of other anole-related information. To find posts on a particular topic, type a key word into the search box.
