The dog that sniffed out the smuggled iguanas and more on the poachers
arrested north of Andros.

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.

    Uncannily timely, a global summit on poaching begins tomorrow in the UK spearheaded by Prince Phillip. I get the feeling, and the website confirms, that the focus is on large charismatic species such as rhinos, which is reasonable, but i wonder how much time is being given to smaller critters like iguanas.
