"The Anolis lizards of the Caribbean are ideally suited for the study of evolutionary ecology. Offering fascinating insights into the more than 150 species dispersed throughout the Caribbean islands, Jonathan Roughgarden details the differences between species in a wide range of behavioral and physical characteristics, including foraging behaviors, body size, and habitat use, resulting from evolutionary divergences concurrent with the plate-tectonic origins of the region. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in ecology and theoretical, tropical, and population biology. Separately available on a DOS disk that runs on most PCs, Roughgarden's software programs provide quantitative models for foraging behavior, community assemblage, and food webs."--Jacket.
