ONTOGENY OF WATER SNAKE FORAGING ECOLOGY
Using an index of relative importance we analyzed the stomach contents of over 300 water snakes (Nerodia spp.). Ontogenetic changes in prey consumption are most striking in Nerodia erythrogasterExpand
Fire and the Florida sandhill herpetofaunal community: with special attention to responses of Cnemidophorus sexlineatus
A system of drift fences and pitfall traps was used over a 2-yr period to monitor the herpetofaunal community on four plots of land (1 ha each) maintained on different burn schedules. ExperimentalExpand
Declines of the gopher tortoise on protected lands
We compared two assessments of the status of gopher tortoise populations at 10 protected sites in Florida, taken about a decade apart. We assessed status indirectly, using surveys of burrows alongExpand
POPULATION BIOLOGY OF THE RARE FLORIDA SCRUB LIZARD IN FRAGMENTED HABITAT
We completed a 3-yr demographic study of the rare Florida scrub lizard, Sceloporus woodi Stejneger, in a small habitat fragment. Censuses were conducted at 2–7 d intervals, with all hatchlings markedExpand
Decline of some west-central Florida anuran populations in response to habitat degradation
Recent reports have suggested that a global decline in amphibian populations has taken place during the past few decades. Urban development is thought to affect the richness and abundances of speciesExpand
DIET AND DIETARY PREFERENCE OF THE JUVENILE GOPHER TORTOISE (GOPHERUS POLYPHEMUS)
We documented both the diet and dietary preference of free-ranging juvenile gopher tortoises (Gopherus polyphemus) by direct observation. All observations were conducted on a 1-ha plot of sandhillExpand
Epigenetic Variation May Compensate for Decreased Genetic Variation with Introductions: A Case Study Using House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) on Two Continents
Epigenetic mechanisms impact several phenotypic traits and may be important for ecology and evolution. The introduced house sparrow (Passer domesticus) exhibits extensive phenotypic variation amongExpand
Foraging Ecology and Prey Size in the Mangrove Water Snake, Nerodia fasciata compressicauda
We report on the foraging ecology of a population of mangrove water snakes, Nerodiafasciata compressicauda, from central Florida. Quantitative estimates of available prey allowed us to evaluate preyExpand
