tigua
An Australian sleepy-lizard (Tiliqua rugosa).  By combining GPS tracking of these lizards with other bio-assays, Orr Spiegel and his colleagues explore the effects of animal personality, movement patterns and social networks on spatial dynamics and parasite transmission

Reynolds, Pam

Research Interest : Role of biodiversity and its interactions with top-down and bottom-up forcing in marine communities.
