The lizard scientists : studying evolution in action / Dorothy Hinshaw Patent ; illustrated by Nate Dappen, Neil Losin.
\ "Award-winning author Dorothy Hinshaw Patent joins forces with scientists/filmmakers Neil Losin and Nate Dappen, whose work is detailed in the Smithsonian Channel documentary "Laws of the Lizard," to explore how the small but mighty lizards we call "anoles" are used by scientists to study basic principles of evolution and ecology. Travel with the team to Florida and the Caribbean as they research how anoles followed similar but independent evolutionary paths on the four major islands of the Greater Antilles (Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Cuba). So while anoles on different islands may look like close relatives, they often are not! This is Darwin's principle of natural selection at work"-- Provided by publisher.
