Entry ID: brdsar0014

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Florida scrub lizard (Sceloporus woodi), which is listed as a category 2
species of special concern by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, is endemic to
scrub habitat and some open sandhill habitats of south and central Florida
(Christman 1992a, 1992b; DeMarco 1992). Florida scrub is found on relic sand
dunes of the central ridge of the Florida peninsula and in strands along more
recent coastal ... View entire text

Purpose: 1. Develop and test a predictive habitat model for the Florida scrub lizard on
a landscape level.
2. Compare the landscape model developed for scrub lizards to data and models
for other species that inhabit Florida scrub
