What is it about?

Andean lizards are poorly known in Peru. Our study gives information on habitat use, activity patterns, and diet of the Andean lizard Liolaemus etheridgei in the fragile ecosystem of Polylepis woodlands. Notes on the natural history of the species are provided too.

Why is it important?

Our study gives novel information about a poorly known Andean lizard in the fragile ecosystem of Poylepis woodlands which helps manage the Andean lizards and Polylepis woodlands.


I hope this study help in the managing of the species and motivates new studies, as there are few publications about the ecology of the Andean lizard species in Peru.
