Title: Behavioral thermoregulation in lizards: importance of associated costs
Author: Huey, Raymond B.
Abstract: The Puerto Rican lizard Anolis cristatellus behaviorally regulates body temperature in an open habitat but passively tolerates lower and more variable temperatures in an adjacent forest where basking sites are few and distant. Thermoregulation may be adaptive only when costs resulting from associated losses of time and energy are low.
