Nocturnal Activity and Anoles, continued

Collaborator Dr. Chris Thawley and his colleague recently published an interesting paper illuminating the consequences of nighttime artificial light use by diurnal anoles (catch the pun?). Check out the new paper HERE!

Our previous publication offers natural history observations for anoles using artificial light at night (ALAN) but stops short of the fitness consequences of this behavior, i.e., how ALAN use might affect survival and reproduction. Chris’ new paper goes into these important aspects — valuable and interesting work!
