Effects Of Thermoregulatory Behavior On Anole Evolution?

In this study we will investigate the behaviors of two species of anole lizards when they are exposed to cold temperatures and do not have a thermal refuge to escape to in order to investigate how thermoregulatory behaviors differ between species, how thermoregulatory behaviors influence critical thermal mimimumas well as patterns in critical thermal mimimum in order to enable us to better understand how thermoregulatory behaviors may influence and interact with evolution.
