Movement control strategies during jumping in a lizard (Anolis valencienni).
Toro E, Herrel A, Irschick DJ. Toro E, et al. Among authors: herrel a. J Biomech. 2006;39(11):2014-9. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiomech.2005.06.009. Epub 2005 Aug 2. J Biomech. 2006. PMID: 16061237
Here we test the generality of this criterion in jumping by inducing lizards to jump both at a range of distances as well as a range of take-off angles. ...Sub-maximal distance jumping in the lizard Anolis valencienni appears to be governed by a relatively si …

Functional implications of supercontracting muscle in the chameleon tongue retractors.
Herrel A, Meyers JJ, Aerts P, Nishikawa KC. Herrel A, et al. J Exp Biol. 2001 Nov;204(Pt 21):3621-7. J Exp Biol. 2001. PMID: 11719528
The data examined here show that in vivo retractor force production is almost constant for a wide range of projection distances. ...We suggest that the chameleon tongue retractor muscles may have evolved supercontractile properties to enable a substantial force to b …

A biomechanical analysis of intra- and interspecific scaling of jumping and morphology in Caribbean Anolis lizards.
Toro E, Herrel A, Vanhooydonck B, Irschick DJ. Toro E, et al. Among authors: herrel a. J Exp Biol. 2003 Aug;206(Pt 15):2641-52. doi: 10.1242/jeb.00473. J Exp Biol. 2003. PMID: 12819270
Here, we use a force plate to investigate the scaling of functional variables associated with jumping within (for three species) and across adults of 12 species of Anolis lizards. ...Whereas acceleration capacity increases with hindlimb length for A. carolinensis, n …

Effects of loading and size on maximum power output and gait characteristics in geckos.
Irschick DJ, Vanhooydonck B, Herrel A, Andronescu A. Irschick DJ, et al. Among authors: herrel a. J Exp Biol. 2003 Nov;206(Pt 22):3923-34. doi: 10.1242/jeb.00617. J Exp Biol. 2003. PMID: 14555734
Lizards were induced to run vertically on a smooth wooden surface with loads of 0-200% of body mass (BM) in H. garnoti and 0-100% BM in G. gecko. ...For a given speed, both species take shorter but more strides with heavier loads, but for a given load, G. gec …

Frugivory in polychrotid lizards: effects of body size.
Herrel A, Vanhooydonck B, Joachim R, Irschick DJ. Herrel A, et al. Oecologia. 2004 Jun;140(1):160-8. doi: 10.1007/s00442-004-1558-7. Epub 2004 Apr 27. Oecologia. 2004. PMID: 15112079
Whereas large body size has been traditionally put forward as a major biological factor "allowing" herbivory and frugivory in lizards, a recent review of frugivory and seed dispersal by lizards showed that frugivory might be considered to be a typical island …

The evolution of jumping performance in Caribbean Anolis lizards: solutions to biomechanical trade-offs.
Toro E, Herrel A, Irschick D. Toro E, et al. Among authors: herrel a. Am Nat. 2004 Jun;163(6):844-56. doi: 10.1086/386347. Epub 2004 May 14. Am Nat. 2004. PMID: 15266382
Interestingly, these "suboptimal" jumping angles result in only a small decrement in jump distance but substantial savings in flight duration and jump height. ...

Omnivory in lacertid lizards: adaptive evolution or constraint?
Herrel A, Vanhooydonck B, Van Damme R. Herrel A, et al. J Evol Biol. 2004 Sep;17(5):974-84. doi: 10.1111/j.1420-9101.2004.00758.x. J Evol Biol. 2004. PMID: 15312070
Our data show that omnivorous lacertid lizards possess modifications of these traits that allow them to successfully exploit plant material as a food source. Conversely, few indications of a compromise phenotype could be detected, suggesting that the evolution towar …

Field studies show a bimodal distribution of adult males within a single population: larger 'heavyweight' males have relatively large heads and high bite forces for their size, whereas smaller 'lightweight' males have smaller heads and lower bite forces. ...

Comparative functional analysis of the hyolingual anatomy in lacertid lizards.
Herrel A, Canbek M, Ozelmas U, Uyanoğlu M, Karakaya M. Herrel A, et al. Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol. 2005 Jun;284(2):561-73. doi: 10.1002/ar.a.20195. Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol. 2005. PMID: 15880434
The tongue is often considered a key innovation in the evolution of a terrestrial lifestyle as it allows animals to transport food items through the oral cavity in air, a medium with low density and viscosity. The tongue has been secondarily coopted for a

A functional morphological approach to the scaling of the feeding system in the African catfish, Clarias gariepinus.
Herrel A, Van Wassenbergh S, Wouters S, Adriaens D, Aerts P. Herrel A, et al. J Exp Biol. 2005 Jun;208(Pt 11):2091-102. doi: 10.1242/jeb.01604. J Exp Biol. 2005. PMID: 15914653
Unexpectedly, different cranial muscles show different scaling patterns that ultimately all lead to a positive allometry of muscle cross-sectional area relative to fish head size. This suggests that (1) the scaling of the cranial elements cannot be predicted a prior …
