Abstract

The family Iguanidae is almost completely restricted to the Western Hemisphere with its main radiations occurring in North and South America. There are also representatives on Fiji, Tonga and the Galapagos Islands, in the Pacific Ocean. Distantly related forms are also found on Madagascar off the Southeastern Coast of Africa. Although the iguanid lizards are familiar to most scientists interested in the tropics, their anatomy and evolution is poorly understood.
