      Dallas Zoo’s reptile keepers recently ended their eighth year studying the life history of Texas horned lizards on the 4,acre Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch in Fisher County, Texas. By collecting lizard life history data, we hope to shed valuable light on the ecology of this threatened native Texan that is now in decline throughout. Hence, in the current study, a spatiotemporal dynamic analysis of precipitation was carried out using trend detection methods (the innovative trend analysis method and Mann–Kendall test) and statistical indices (the consecutive disparity index, entropy-based variability index and absolute inter-variability index) in the southwest arid region.

    As an important component to quantify the carbon budget, accurate evaluation of terrestrial gross primary production (GPP) is crucial for large-scale applications, especially in dryland ecosystems. Based on the in situ data from six flux sites in northwestern China from to , this study compares seasonal and interannual dynamics of carbon fluxes between these arid and semi-arid.

      The ≈28, species of tetrapods (four-limbed vertebrates) almost exclusively have perennial life spans. Here, we report the discovery of a remarkable annual tetrapod from the arid southwest of Madagascar: the chameleon Furcifer labordi, with a posthatching life span of just 4–5 months. At the start of the active season (November), an age cohort of hatchlings emerges; larger .   In arid and semiarid areas where water is a limiting resource, IRES support more animals and different species compared with the surrounding landscape, as they offer higher moister content and more abundant vegetation (Soykan et al., ).For instance, in the arid southwest region of North America, about 80% of all animals use riparian resources and habitats in some life stage, and more .

Water resources and rights: Inland communities in the west receive return flow credits, and hence must own or acquire water rights to reuse wastewater. A further consideration is that wastewater discharges are often an important source of environmental flows in the arid Southwest. life biologists from private, state, and federal organiza-tions.

Because of the taxonomic and ecological diversity of amphibians and reptiles, recommendations may not apply to every species in every situation. The authors and editors of the Guidelines suggest consulting a local herpetologist before significant land-use changes are implemented.

The Southwestern United States, also known as the American Southwest, Desert Southwest, or simply the Southwest, is the informal name for a region of the western United tions of the region's boundaries vary a great deal and have never been standardized, though many boundaries have been proposed.

For example, one definition includes the stretch from the Mojave Desert in California. The largest living group of reptiles, the lizards, is made up of more than 5, species.

Typical of reptiles, lizards have claws, lungs, and a tough outer skin of epidermal scales. Like all reptiles, they do not adjust their own body temperature. They assume the temperature of their environment and cannot live in extreme cold or heat.

AB: Right now, I am working on several book and monograph projects. One is a book on the biology of geckos in light of their evolutionary relationships. Another is a book on the reptiles and amphibians of Namibia, in southwest Africa.

I am also updating my earlier book on the herpetofauna of New Caledonia, a French territory in the South Pacific.
