The Texas tortoise : a natural history by Francis L Rose( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remnants of an ancient lineage, tortoises date back to the Eocene. Among the five species remaining in North America, Texas tortoises are the smallest in size and inhabit some of the harshest arid environments known. They are also the most neglected by wildlife personnel. In The Texas Tortoise, biologists Francis L. Rose and Frank W. Judd draw on decades of research to offer the first comprehensive account of this fascinating but threatened species. The authors begin by explaining the relationship of the Texas tortoise to other species, fossil as well as extant. They delineate the Texas tortoise's environment and describe what it eats, how the animal grows and reproduces, and how it behaves. Readers also learn the tortoise's tactics for enduring potentially deadly high temperatures, from panting to sheltering in other animals' burrows. Throughout, Rose and Judd write eloquently about the threats to the species' survival, reflecting deep concern about its future protection. The authors also discuss Texas tortoises' significance in supporting other species in their environment - southern Texas and northeastern Mexico - where their survival is threatened by habitat reduction and other human-caused environmental changes, including increasing road traffic. "If you see a tortoise on the roadway," Rose and Judd admonish to ther reader, " move it to safety, and drive away as quickly as legally allowed." It is in fact illegal to collect or possess a Texas tortoise. But for those who do, this book advises how to care for the animal, including feeding it Romaine lettuce and hatching its eggs in masonry sand placed in a tortilla warmer. Tortoises have enjoyed a splendid and diverse history. That they did so well for so long is perplexing, the authors note, as the animals are slow, do not actively defend themselves against predators, and are readily eaten by all manner of creatures, among them human beings. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department lists Texas tortoises as "threatened," and Rose and Judd call on the federal government to do the same, as security fencing under construction along the U.S. -Mexico border will destroy valuable habitat. Biologists, conservationists, and turtle enthusiasts alike will find this guide to Texas and other tortoises invaluable. -- from dust jacket

Competitive interference for habitat space among three species of Texas geckos by Ramah Kathryn Vaughan( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The behavior of three species of nocturnal Texas geckos, Hemidactylus turcicus. Cyrtopodion scabrum, and Coleonyx brevis, was studied in an indoor laboratory and an outdoor enclosure complex to assess the behavioral I interactions that may affect use of habitat space. H. turcicus and Cyrtopodion scabrum, both of which are introduced, occur syntopically in Galveston, and may be interacting aggressively. The third species is a native Texas gecko, whose continued success might be jeopardized should the ranges of the two introduced species extend westward. For the two introduced species, frequencies of interspecific interactions were greater than in I intraspecific trials. Hemidactylus turcicus was more active in patrolling and tongue flicks than Cyrtopodion scabrum, although frequencies of aggressive behaviors did not differ, Coleonyx brevis did not interact aggressively with either of the introduced geckos, or with conspecifics. Outdoor enclosure trials were conducted to assess the perch choice of each species with and without the presence of the other species. Perch substrate choices varied among the three species of geckos while segregated by species. Hemidactylus turcicus preferred vertical walls, Cyrtopodion scabrum preferred rocks, and Coleonyx brevis preferred ground perches. The distribution of perch choices for visible H. turcicus and Cyrtopodion scabrum remained the same in mixed species trials, however, the proportion of individuals not visible increased for each species. The distribution of perch choices for Coleonyx brevis was not changed by the presence of the other two species. Perch heights varied among the species while segregated and decreased significantly in mixed trials. Directional exposure preference differed between the two introduced species when segregated, but not when mixed. Mean minimum distance moved in a 24-hour interval did not vary among species
