Figure 2

Panel (A) shows the significantly lower rainfall totals from ground based estimates of the drought during 2004 (grey columns) which had significant impacts on habitat use by lizards (B), the frequency of leaf use for cover (C) correlational selection gradients on limb length (D) quadratic selection gradients on body size (E) and changes in mean body condition (F). In each panel, points represent mean values ± 1 SE. In contrast to figure 2, here we report the magnitude of selection gradients to stress the years in which selection acted on limb length or body size compared to when it did not. Significant differences in means (based on Tukey-Kramer post hoc tests) are denoted by differing lower-case letters. Asterisks denote significant selection gradients.
