Summary: Adaptive radiation, which results when a single ancestral species gives rise to many descendants, each adapted to a different part of the environment, is possibly the single most important source of biological diversity in the living world. One of the best-studied examples involves CaribbeanAnolislizards. With about 400 species,Anolishas played an important role in the development of ecological theory and has become a model system exemplifying the integration of ecologi morecal, evolutionary, and behavioral studies to understand evolutionary diversification. This major work, written by one of the best-known investigators ofAnolis,reviews and synthesizes an immense literature. Jonathan B. Losos illustrates how different scientific approaches to the questions of adaptation and diversification can be integrated and examines evolutionary and ecological questions of interest to a broad range of biologists. less
