Ecosystem services provided by playas in the High Plains: potential influences of USDA conservation programs
Playas are shallow depressional wetlands and the dominant wetland type in the non-glaciated High Plains of the United States. This region is one of the most intensively cultivated regions in the… Expand
Contaminant exposure in terrestrial vertebrates.
Here we review mechanisms and factors influencing contaminant exposure among terrestrial vertebrate wildlife. There exists a complex mixture of biotic and abiotic factors that dictate potential for… Expand
Size estimation, morphometrics, sex ratio, sexual size dimorphism, and biomass of Morelet's crocodile in northern Belize
Abstract. We used morphometric data from 1276 Crocodylus moreletii captured in northern Belize (1992–2001) to develop predictive models for determining body size (total length [TL], snout-vent length… Expand

Low Levels of Nucleotide Diversity in Crocodylus moreletii and Evidence of Hybridization with C. acutus
Examinations of both population genetic structure and the processes that lead to such structure in crocodilians have been initiated in several species in response to a call by the IUCN Crocodile… Expand
Wild Populations of the Chinese alligator approach extinction
The Chinese alligator, Alligator sinensis, is on the verge of becoming extinct in the wild as a result of loss of natural wetlands in the lower Changjiang valley. Chinese alligators are only known… Expand
Reproductive dynamics of a tropical freshwater crocodilian: Morelet's crocodile in northern Belize
Morelet's crocodile Crocodylus moreletii has not been well-studied and many aspects of its life history are unknown. In particular there is a notable paucity of information on nesting and… Expand
