Skeletochronology of the Threatened Florida Sand Skink, Plestiodon (Neoseps) reynoldsi
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Analysis of skeletochronological variation in fibulae of the threatened Florida Sand Skink, Plestiodon (Neoseps) reynoldsi, found numbers of growth marks that almost always exceeded the maximum life span predicted by mark–recaptures studies. We propose that the large number of growth marks observed in the Florida Sand Skink reflect variation in food availability.
