Mike’s paper on phenotypic integration in claw and toepad traits in anoles was just accepted for publication in Evolution. Mike assembled a massive dataset, with hundreds of specimens from dozens of species of Greater Antillean Anolis lizards, and performed a sophisticated phylogenetic and morphometric analyses that received overwhelmingly positive reviews. This paper will be the first chapter of his dissertation, with more exciting projects to come!
