This chapter introduces anoles, describing their diagnostic characteristics and geographic distribution, as well as species diversity. Anoles are characterized by the possession of a dewlap and of subdigital toepads. A number of other features are notable, especially aspects of the anole visual system and reproductive cycle. The chapter also discusses species recognition and evolution of reproductive isolation in anoles.

Keywords:   anoles, geographic distribution, species diversity, dewlap, toepads, species recognition, reproductive isolation
