First Project Expedition

The first major expedition of the Caribbean Biogeography project was a tremendous success! Collaborators included undergraduate students from the University of Puerto Rico and Lewis & Clark College, graduate students from the University of Puerto Rico, PIs Ingi Agnarsson and Greta Binford, and additional collaborators from STENAPA and the American Museum of Natural History. The arachnid expedition, probably the largest in the history of the island, resulted in the collection of several major arachnid groups including many families of spiders, solfugids, amblypygids, opilionids, schizomids, scorpions, and pseudoscorpions.
