  1. Each site is described with number of sampling bouts (SB), sample size (number of individuals, N) for each population (for a total of 775 lizards) and environmental factors including altitude (Alt), mean maximal temperature in June (Tmax6), vegetation cover index (VCI), human disturbance (HD, 1 to 3, with 1 being the least disturbed), and grazing condition (G: 0 = ungrazed, 1 = grazed)
