Color Changing In Lizards Temperature & Ontogenetic Effects Research Paper

Abstract Brief (no more than 200-word) summary of the proposed project.

Introduction: Your introduction and background section should include a clear statement of your research question and a full literature review with a discussion of why your question is important from a scientific/biological standpoint. Remember to cite your sources!

*** The topic is about color changing in lizard, due to temperature and/or hide from predator, using these 6 resources write the introduction section and please focus on these two topics: thermoregulation or temperature changing and color changing + changing color to hide from predators. ** remember to use in text citation.
