The June 2009 number of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter marks a low point for the lizard genus Anolis. Joel McNeal from Athens, Georgia reports the capture of a small green anole (Anolis carolinensis) by the venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula). The lizard was dead by the time he found it, but he never got a chance to see if it would be digested because the lizard and most of the trap were gone the following day, presumably due to bird predation.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
