  • Stephens’ Kangaroo Rat Rangewide Management and Monitoring Plan
    This Stephens’ Kangaroo Rat Rangewide Management and Monitoring Plan summarizes new and existing information about the endangered Stephens’ kangaroo rat (SKR; Dipodomys stephensi) and uses it to present comprehensive, rangewide SKR management and monitoring strategies. It is intended to help agencies responsible for SKR conservation be more efficient and effective in managing and tracking changes important for SKR recovery. It ...
  • Mitochondrial Phylogeography of the Endangered Blunt-Nosed Leopard Lizard, Gambelia Sila
    To assess the genetic diversity and phylogeography of the blunt-nosed leopard lizard (Gambelia sila), we sequenced 1,285 base pairs (bp) of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase-b (cyt-b, 682 bp) and cytochrome oxidase III (CO3, 603 bp) genes from 33 individuals representing eight natural populations in central California. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that 17 observed haplotypes are partitioned into two major clades ...
  • Self-recognition, color signals, and cycles of greenbeard mutualism and altruism
    Altruism presents a challenge to evolutionary theory because selection should favor selfish over caring strategies. Greenbeard altruism resolves this paradox by allowing cooperators to identify individuals carrying similar alleles producing a form of genic selection. In side-blotched lizards, genetically similar but unrelated blue male morphs settle on adjacent territories and cooperate. Here we show that payoffs of cooperation depend on ...
