FRUTOS, Nicolás; CAMPORRO, Leonardo A  y  AVILA, Luciano J. HOME RANGE OF LIOLAEMUS MELANOPS BURMEISTER, 1888 (Squamata: Liolaemini) IN CENTRAL CHUBUT, ARGENTINA. Gayana (Concepc.) [online]. 2007, vol.71, n.2, pp.142-149. ISSN 0717-652X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-65382007000200002.

Liolaemus melanops is a medium sized lizard (up to 90 mm SVL) that inhabits sandy lowlands and coastal dunes in Río Negro and Chubut Provinces. We studied the home range of a population of Liolaemus melanops from central Chubut Province between February and May, 2005. In a grid of 100 x 100 m all observed individuals were captured, sexed, measured, marked and released. We made regular transects between 08:00 and 19:00 h and registered the position of all observed lizards. Home range was calculated using the Minimum Convex Polygon method. No differences in Home range between males and females were found. There was no correlation between body size and home range. Home range overlap was low in females but high in males. These results are discussed at the light of current theory.

Palabras clave : Liolaemus; Patagonia; Minimum Convex Polygon; Liolaemini.
