Omnivorous lacertid lizards of the genus Gallotia from El Hierro, Canary Islands can identify prey and plant food using only chemical cues. Our work on these questions leads us through evolutionary biology, animal behavior, philosophy of biology, network theory, epidemiology, and even into domains of the social sciences such as economics and bibliometrics.

Eavesdropping and signals: For many signallers, predators or, in some cases, parasites form a broad class of unwelcome eavesdroppers. Individual tortoises are consistently migrants or non-migrants, and morphological and physiological differences suggest the dichotomy has some genetic basis. Species whose veins or nerves are like threads of a net, arranged in a network. Instead it acts at the level of alternative alleles, in this case coding for females that produce different sex ratios among their offspring.
