Abstract

The life history and reproductive ecology of White s skink, Egernia whitii, was examined in a population in the Australian Capital Territory using both field and genetic studies. Colour pattern polymorphism was evident within the population, with both patterned and plain-back morphs present. Lizards typically took 3 years to reach sexual maturity, with the size at maturity being similar to 75 mm snout-vent length (SVL) in both sexes.
