Short-horned lizard (Phrynosoma hernandesi hernandesi) populations in Alberta : 2002 survey results

Description

Short-homed lizards reach the northernmost extent of their distribution in the province of Alberta and are found in relatively small and disjunct sub-populations that are sparsely distributed over a broad area of the southeastern comer of the province. An effort to search and verify presence of lizards at all sites where they were previously recorded in Alberta was undertaken in July and August of 2001 and 2002. In total, 59 individual sections were searched. Lizards were captured on 19 of these sections. This low number of sections with a verified presence of lizards, in combination with anecdotal evidence, suggests that the overall distribution of this species has contracted within Alberta. Survey effort information from 2001 implies that lizard populations, at the sites that they persist, seem relatively stable.
