    The evolution of lizards

    The South Australian Museum will join the first comprehensive study of its kind on the evolution of lizards in Australia.

    Earlier this month, a $300,000 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant was awarded to a group of researchers led by Dr David Chapple from the Monash University School of Biological Sciences. It was one of 16 successful new research grants awarded in 2017 that include South Australian Museum researchers, the total amount awarded amounting to $6.9 million.
