This chapter focuses on the characteristics, evolutionary history, and historical distribution of horned lizards. It discusses adaptive radiation, an evolutionary process that enabled horned lizards to diversify into a number of closely related species of similar form. It is believed that the ancestral group of horned lizards separated into what later became a southern group of species (southern radiation) and a northern group of species (northern radiation).

Keywords:   evolutionary history, historical distribution, horned lizards, adaptive radiation, southern radiation, northern radiation
