Experts from around the state will each conduct an interactive, 3-hour presentation at Highlands Center for Natural History, 1375 S. Walker Rd. in Prescott from Jan. 21 through Feb. 20.
The fourth class of this series will be presented by Julio Rivera, ASU who will discuss "Communication and evolution of Sceloporus lizards in North America" from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30.
Sceloporus lizards, also known as fence or spiny lizards, are native to North America and are known for their bright blue bellies that they use to communicate with other lizards. But, sometimes a species loses its blue patches, how then can a lizard with no color communicate with other lizards? This program will focus on answering questions like how do lizards communicate when a trait has disappears and how does this shift in communication reflect on their skull shape.
Registration is required. Admission for a non-member is $25 per class. Members receive a 10% discounted rate.
