The discrepancy in sample size between males and females resulted from the time period of the study, which included the early summer months when gravid females thermoregulate on the surface, and are more frequently encountered than males.

Caudisona polysticta COPE After ensuring the patient and onlookers have moved out of range of further strikes by the snake, the bitten person should be reassured and persuaded to lie down and remain still. View large Download slide. These prey categories represented a minor proportion of the total adult diet of each sex numerically but reflect larger changes in mass-weighted diet.

Head size was calculated as centroid size CSwhich is the square root of the summed squared distances between the configuration centroid and its landmarks size is removed in GPA by scaling configurations to a common unit size by dividing by centroid size. Strong, but incomplete, mate choice discrimination between two closely related species of paper wasp. Shallow phylogeographic structure in the declining Mexican Lance-headed Rattlesnake, Crotalus polystictus Serpentes: Retrieved 1 August The Venomous Reptiles of Latin America.

Differential resource use between sexes generates intraspecific variation, and thereby can reduce intraspecific competition for limiting resources Slatkin, ; Shine, Owing to complex scaling relationships that often accompany growth processes, separating the contributions of size and shape are notoriously difficult using combinations of linear measurements.

We rejected the null hypothesis of no difference in y -intercepts type III sums of squares: Crotalus polystictus is strongly associated with mammal burrows and consumes a high proportion of tunnel-dwelling rodents Table 1and nestling mammals E. Accordingly, sexual differences in morphology resulting from diet should be more readily detectable than in taxa that masticate their prey. A data file of all landmark configurations has been deposited in the Dryad repository: Mesoamerican Herpetology 4 4: Dangerousness Unknown, but potentially lethal envenoming, though unlikely, cannot be excluded.

Renal Damage Insufficient clinical polystictuz to know. All GM protocols were performed in R, version 2. Klauber reported that sexual dimorphism of head size was negligible in a large sample of Crotalus viridis from Platteville, Nebraska. For each photograph, a scale was positioned at the level of the crown of the head.


pllystictus We make a reasonable attempt to verify accuracy of information listed on this site. Sexual dimorphism and dietary divergence: We tested whether relative frequencies of prey species consumed were independent between males and females using a chi-squared test. Snakes used for GM analysis of head morphology were collected during June and July as part of a long-term, mark-recapture study of C.

This result is consistent with the GM approach using deformation grids, which showed shifts in landmark configurations in mean male head shape relative to mean female head shape Fig. Seek urgent medical attention.
