Undergraduate research team presentation

Undergraduate research team presented in the UF Undergraduate Research Symposium

Our undergraduate research team presented the results of their work on the effects of hurricane disturbance on phenotypic traits of the anole Anolis stratulus, one of the most common anole species at El Verde Field Station in Puerto Rico. They analyzed six years of data to show that the size of lizards captured after the hurricane increased. They described a series of hypotheses that may explain this pattern including the potential vertical redistribution of anole species following hurricane disturbance. Good job Julia, Brooke, Bella, Vic and Cooper!
