<Phyllodytes magnus>, #NovaEspécie descoberta na #MataAtlântica baiana por #cientistas da UESC, @usponline e @UesbOficial. É a maior espécie do gênero, com ~40 mm (por isso o 'magnus') e vive em bromélias nas árvores! #biodiversidade #taxonomia #newspecies

New paper in #populationecology on joint live and dead encounter models! When reported mortality probabilities are >0.10, even a small recap probability (0.01) improves precision in demographic estimates. Thanks to co-authors Scott, Ray, Dana!
