The dewlaps of anoles vary greatly in size, including some species that have no dewlap at all. The dewlap serves many purposes-including courtship, territorial interactions, species recognition, and predator deterrence-and must be an effective communicatory signal in different light environments. We measured dewlap size in 52 species of Caribbean anoles to test a variety of hypotheses concerning the evolution of dewlap size. Species with conspicuous body coloration or patterning tend to have rel...

Devices and methods for minimally invasive harvesting of a vessel or vascular conduit, especially the saphenous vein for coronary artery bypass grafting, are disclosed. Generally, an instrument is provided which has one or more specially designed end effectors which are permanently or detachably mounted to a harvesting implement, and may also be interchangeable with each other. The end effectors have features or elements which facilitate separation of connective tissue from the vessel and/or eng...
