Identification of fossil squamate
reptiles (lizards and snakes) is typically a challenge due to the lack of comprehensive osteological collections of extant taxa.
Much of our findings are in agreement with those from a number of previous studies which have described the fisher as a generalist carnivore that feeds on a suite of mammalian prey species supplemented with opportunistic exploitation of a variety of birds, squamate
reptiles, plant materials, and fungi (De Vos, 1952; Giuliano et al.
I propose to use the powerful but overlooked squamate
system to answer major questions in visual science.
Convergent evolution and character correlation in burrowing reptiles: towards a resolution of squamate
External incubation alters the composition of squamate
Like many northern latitude squamate
reptiles, rattlesnakes gather (sometimes in large numbers) and overwinter communally in subsurface rock shelters (hibemacula) to escape potentially lethal winter temperatures (St.
Choriallantoic placentation in squamate
reptiles: structure, function, development, and evolution.
The species epithet refers to the squamate
or densely clustered scalelike indument present in the petioles that is especially conspicuous when dry.
reptiles--lizards and snakes--are among the most diverse groups of vertebrates, with more than 9,000 living species.
