This is a problem because the majority of Neogene-age squamate
fossils identified tend to be dentary and maxillary bones often due to collecting biases (Bell and Mead 2014).
Scanning electron microscopy of changes in epidermal structure occurring during the shedding cycle in squamate
(Reptilia) from the Upper Cretaceous of Lano (Basque Country, Spain).
The contributions from the study of microstructure may provide important data to answer a series of questions related to the adaptation of squamates
to the most diverse habitats.
One of the most economically important squamates
, millions are killed each year for their meat and hides.
Patterns of covariation in life history traits of squamate
reptiles: the effects of size and phylogeny reconsidered.
are vertebrates (organisms with a backbone) that don't have bodily processes for controlling their internal temperature.
And I create exhibitions such as the upcoming show on squamates
It remains to be seen how mortality risk is distributed in natural populations of squamates
, but the effect still calls the generality of the Shine and Schwarzkopf (1992) model into serious question (Niewiarowski and Dunham 1994).
