The relationship between lizard home range and body size: a reanalysis of the data

Abstract

When analyzed separately, neither insectivorous, carnivorous nor female herbivorous lizards had a significant regression of home range size against body mass; male herbivores had a marginally significant regression. Combining data for different foraging types resulted in significant regressions for both males and females; the regression for the pooled data set (males plus females) was also significant. Home range size for side-blotched lizard Uta stansburiana could be accurately determined, without sample size bias, with an average of 13 resightings per lizard.
