About This Project

Low fecundity has been reported for many gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) aggregations in south Florida, implying an unsustainable population structure. We will conduct a comprehensive health assessment on a previously unstudied group of gopher tortoises in south Florida, to determine baseline demographic and epidemiology parameters, and to help explain fecundity differences in ecologically and geographically similar aggregations.
