Led by grad student Mike Yuan and undergrad Catherine Jung, we have a new paper out in Biological Journal of the Linnean Society on the evolution of claw and toepad morphology in anoles. This study takes a look at how competing forces shape the evolution of these ecologically important traits in the anoles of the Lesser Antilles.
