Meta-analysis on reptile developmental plasticity

It’s been many years in the making with Lisa Schwanz and Vaughn Stenhouse, but finally our utterly massive meta-analysis on the role of incubation temperatures on phenotypic variability and survival is finally out in Biological Reviews! We collated effect sizes from 92 different species across all major reptile orders taken from 175 different studies that […]

'Kids' in warm environments learn better! Incubation temperature affects a baby lizards ability to learn a motor task

Our new paper on baby lizard cognition was just published in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology!

Lizard cognition has experienced something of a resurgence in the last few years. To get up to speed, take a look at a previous post summarising most of the recent published work. In a new paper published online in Behavioral […]

Redder Frillneck lizards are better fighters! MUST read!

Recently, the Pryke Lab published its first paper on a reptile—the iconic Frillneck Lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii). Both males and females have frills and until now, the consensus has always been that frills play a role in anti-predator behaviour.
