In our efforts to sample anoles from across the Dominican Republic we've been doing lots of driving. While on the road we've been constantly entertained by the things Dominicans manage to move around on motorcycles. The photos above are only a small sampling of what we've seen: eggs, cases of beer, a steel gate, and five (!) people. Believe it or not, this was the first of three five-tops we've seen. Remarkabely, that's not even the record -- a few years ago I spotted seven-top that included three adults and four children.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
