Unlocking the Evolutionary Secrets of Local Amphibians and Lizards

Two new research projects were set out to map the evolution and historical geographical migration of key amphibian and reptile species within the Lesser Antilles. Understanding critical differences between similar species and how their particular evolutionary paths deviated from neighboring populations could prove crucial in the protection of these species moving forward. In January 2020 researchers from University of California and Smithsonian Institution visited St Maarten to collect data.
