We Are Back

Snappas an Abaco must visit grill and one of Dave Steinberg favorite relaxing spots.
We are back in Abaco and ready to begin our field season. If you are a follower of the blog, you might recall that last year we had serious problems due to hurricanes. The population density of anoles on a number of our study islands was very close to extinction levels. We are looking forward to tomorrow, our first day of this year's census, to get a better idea of the fate of populations. Have they bounced back or gone locally extinct? If the populations have increased in number, are there any phenotypic changes after passing through a bottleneck? Stay tuned for possible answers to these questions, which will be posted throughout the following weeks.
