...but for those of you interested in the actually Science of Herpetology....
I just found that this was posted online.
This is the abstract for my thesis at University, it involved estimating age in amphibians from rings of growth in the bones (like a tree) - called Skeletochronology
If interested, read the abstract, It turned out that the entire method (which was generally accepted among herpetologists) was not all that accurate.
So, It could actually change the method that population demographics are complied in the future....I think its going to russle a few feathers in the meantime as well
The abstract was presented at Carcnet and the full paper is hopefully being published soon!
