Many studies have shown that ecological factors influence life story traits of animal populations. In this study, some
life history characteristics such as age, longevity, age at maturity and sexual size dimorphism were analyzed in a
population of
H.turcicus (Turkish gecko). The results have shown that maximum lifespan and age at maturity were 7
and 2-3 years in this population, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference between female and
male individuals in terms of mean age and body size. A significant positive correlation was found between body size
and age in both males and females
  

Ekolojik faktörlerin hayvan populasyonlarının yaşam öyküsü özellikleri üzerinde etkili olduğu birçok çalışmada
gösterilmiştir. Bu çalışmada Hemidactylus turcicus (geniş parmaklı keler) türüne ait bir populasyonda yaş, ömür
uzunluğu, eşeysel olgunluğa erişme yaşı ve boya bağlı eşeysel dimorfizm gibi bazı yaşam öyküsü özellikleri analiz
edilmiştir. Elde edilen sonuçlar, bu populasyonda maksimum ömür uzunluğunun 7 yıl, eşeysel olgunluğa erişme
yaşının ise 2-3 yıl olduğunu göstermiştir. Dişi ve erkek bireylerin ortalama yaşları ve boyları arasında istatistiksel
olarak anlamlı bir fark bulunmamıştır. Hem erkek hem de dişi bireylerin vücut boyları ile yaşları arasında önemli
derecede pozitif bir korelasyon bulunmuştur.
