Sydney Science Forum: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree

Professor Jonathan Losos, Harvard University

Lizards are an extraordinarily old and diverse group of animals. Around since the beginning of the Age of Dinosaurs, lizards (including snakes, which are evolutionarily derived from lizards) have more species diversity than do mammals. Lizards live in almost all parts of the world and show a myriad of different adaptations for living in different environments. Many species are easy to observe in the wild and study in the laboratory, making them ideal organisms for investigating the origin and maintenance of biological diversity.
