In conjunction with net primary production studies, consumer and faunal studies were conducted at or near NPP sites using pitfall traps. We used live traps, not employing ethylene glycol or other killing/preservative agents, with traps checked once a week at the minimum. Sampling-with-replacement was used with the lizards.
Variables measured included species, sex, recapture status, snout-vent length, total length, weight, and whether tail was broken or whole. This study is complete.
