Remarkable Colour-Variation in Lizards


THE remarkable case of local colour-variation in lizards communicated by Mr. A. R. Wallace to NATURE (vol. xix. p. 4), had already been investigated by Dr. Theodor Eimer, an abstract or translation of whose memoir on the subject, entitled “Lacertamuralis cœrulea, a Contribution to the Darwinian Theory,” is to be found in Ann. and Mag. Nat. Hist., 1875, 4th ser., vol. xvi. p. 234.
