Postdoctoral researcher Tony Gamble, in collaboration with scientists at Villanova University and the University of Calgary, found that sticky toes evolved independently in about 11 different gecko groups and were lost in at least nine groups. In order to understand how the toepads evolved, the research team produced the most complete gecko family tree ever constructed. Hear about the lengths the researchers went to to collect 200 species for their study.
