About This Project

How does a gecko choose its home? The Mediterranean Kotschyi's gecko resides under rocks in much of its distribution range, and on trees in other parts. What makes it choose one habitat over the other? Is it competition with other species? Or maybe they just choose the most abundant type of shelter around? I plan to explore the evolutionary processes behind this gecko's habitat preferences, and understand the drivers which influence its choice, by conducting habitat preference experiments.

Blast off!
