Question Description

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.

Color Changing in Lizards
Institution Affiliation




Abstract Brief
Some organisms are usually capable of physiological color changes either to hide from
predators or to control changes in their bodies and the environment. The study presented here
aims to underscore how such organisms manage to change their colors and the underlying factors
that trigger this to happen. The paper contains scientific views by scholars who have extensively
researched on the topic and made several observations on such organisms. The introduction
contains the gateway into understanding why the topic is important in the study of such
organisms while a literature review is provided to help understand what other scholars have done
concerning the topic of study. In the study below, information that is backed by data is provided
in an open yet conclusive way paving the way for a foundation into further research. In a nutshell,
the focus of the paper will be in showing how studies of color changing in organisms have
helped in understanding camouflage and response to environmental cha...
