We have a report in the latest issue of Reptiles and Amphibias: Conservation and Natural History that reports range expansion of the invasive Cuban anole Anolis porcatus in the Dominican Republic (PDF link to paper). Anolis porcatus was first discovered in Santo Domingo decades ago, but now appears to have expanded its range outside the […]
I’ve started posting some Glor Lab images over at flickr. I’m hoping to get more images up this week, including highlights from our 2010 and 2011 expeditions. I’d love to get your help labeling images because I’ll never get to all them myself. You should be able to comment on specific images and I can […]
Sulawesi is a remarkable island for the study of speciation. The island has always enjoyed isolation from other land areas, but until fairly recently (in geologic history) the island was actually an archipelago, so it is possible to assess what happens when closely related, allopatrically distributed species come into secondary contact in the regions where […]
That’s our boy Anolis distichus ignigularis. This photograph was taken in Los Haitises National Park at a small beach along the coast. In other news, lab meeting is going to be on Friday at noon again this week. Please be sure to fill in your availability on the doodle calendar if you want to participate […]
Shea, Anthony, Miguel and I have been working the Recodo Road for the last few days. In addition to getting natural history, thermal, and dewlap data, we’ve had dataloggers out to get data on environmental variation throughout the day. I swam out yesterday to get some dataloggers that we put up across the river earlier […]
Browsing through photos from recent field trips unearthed this gem. Dan, Julienne and I are a boat in the Los Haitises region and Dan is pretty excited about his Dino cookie.
With any luck we’ll be back in snowy Rochester by Friday night. Here are few shots from my last full day on the Rio Bani. I’m including a shot of a female A. marcanoi that I found near the male whose photo I posted over on Anole Annals. Dan, Anthony and Miguel are spending the […]
Below are some shots taken three days ago as Anthony and I walked the river bed between localities 2 and 3 on Julienne’s transect along Recodo Road.
Anyone familiar with life in the Glor Lab knows that coffee is a important feature of lab culture. Things remain much the same when we’re in the field, with each morning beginning with a trip to a local roadside coffee stand. Unhappy with the quality recently offered by our long-term provider in Bani, we set […]
Anthony, Dan, Miguel and I are down in Bani working the Recodo Road transect. We spent yesterday hiking beyond the transect’s previous endpoint (Recodo #5). We hiked for four hours into the foothills of the Cordillera Central before reaching a small coffee farming village populated primarily by migrant Haitian workers (they work the cane in […]
