“What we found was that the panthers that had a mix of Texas and Florida genes were more genetically diverse, had fewer defects and were, in general, surviving better,” said Jeff Hostetler, a doctoral student with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
“The big picture is that things have improved from a genetic standpoint for the population, coinciding with an increase in population,” said Dave Onorato, a panther expert with the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Florida Panther Project. “The evidence is pretty clear that there has been a positive impact on the population.”
Madan Oli, a population ecology professor who led the UF team, said because scientists have studied panthers so consistently for so long, the amount and variety of data collected from the carnivores were stunning and valuable.

Chris Anderson started keeping chameleons in 1997 and since then has worked with over 50 different species. Having spent time in the jungles of South East Asia, among other areas, aiding in research for publication, he has traveled to over 35 countries, including chameleon habitat in 6. Included in these, he has traveled throughout Madagascar in search of, and conducting personal research on the chameleons of the region. Having received his B.S. in Animal Science from Cornell University, Chris is currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of South Florida’s Department of Integrative Biology studying the effects of temperature on ballistic tongue projection and tongue retraction in chameleons for his dissertation. Some of his research has been published in top scientific journals and featured in popular press and news outlets all over the world. Currently, Chris is the Editor and Webmaster of the Chameleons!
