The Anoles of Honduras: Systematics, Distribution, and Conservation
The lizard genus Anolis contains more species than any other genus of reptile, bird, or mammal. Caribbean members of this group have been intensively studied, but knowledge of Central and South American anoles has lagged behind. James R. McCranie and Gunther Köhler begin to fill this gap with a detailed account of the anoles of Honduras.
