Climate change: tropics

Another effect of climate change: disappearing lizards
Ray Huey has been studying lizards for a long time - but he's finding fewer of them to study. The University of Washington biology professor's research into the evolutionary physiology of lizards and tortoises, especially in the tropics, is finding dramatic impacts from climate change.
Huey was recently a guest lecturer at the University of Montana, and took time to sit down in our studios with News Director Sally Mauk to talk about the evolutionary and ecological effects of our warming climate.
