Abstract

This special section presents five papers on "Herpetology". Topics of papers include: trait allometries generate super-honesty in Anolis dewlaps and may underlie sexual dimorphism; eliciting conditioned taste aversion in lizards: live toxic prey are more effective than scent and taste cues alone; the scaling of bite force and constriction pressure in kingsnakes (Lampropeltis getula): proximate determinants and correlated performance; reproductive strategies in males of the world's southernmost lizards; and effects of low-oxygen conditions on embryo growth in the painted turtle, Chrysemys picta.
