Coming Soon

July 3, 2008

This is the blog for the Portal Project, an ecological study of rodents, ants and plants that was begun in 1977. This long-term study is currently run by Thomas J. Valone (Saint Louis University), James H. Brown (University of New Mexico), and me (S.K. Morgan Ernest; Utah State University). The purpose of this blog is to inform interested parties of recent research results and current impressions gained from the field. We go down every month for the rodent census, twice yearly for the plants, and annually for the plants. Stay tuned as we get the blog up and running.
