In addition to a number of Anole posters yesterday, the Joint Meeting of Icthyologists and Herpetologists featured a talk by Rich Glor entitled “Phylogenetics and Diversification of Anolis Lizards.” In his 12 minutes Rich covered a lot of material. He described: the key components in diagnosing an adaptive radiation (speciation, adaptation and the more controversial extraordinary diversification), how the properties of adaptive radiations result in problems resolving their phylogenies (particularly when diversification rates are extraordinary), leveraging the anole genome project to generate and analyze new, informative loci for anole phylogenetics, the impact of incomplete data matrices on the ability to accurately infer phylogenies, and closed with a presentation of the latest, greatest genus-wide phylogeny of Anoles.
- 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.
