Total estimated population size varies between 37,000 and 280,000 individuals. Marine Iguanas have evolved in the absence of major predators, and their populations are regulated by cyclically recurring famine (El Niño) and feast (La Niña) events. Population declines are strongly density-dependent: the higher the population density, the higher the mortalities during El Niños (from 10–90%). Recovery after El Niños is rapid, as females compensate by reproducing younger and laying more eggs. Marine Iguana morphology differs between islands. Seven subspecies have been proposed, although only three major clades can be distinguished genetically. Twelve populations (approximately 74% of all Marine Iguanas) still live in pristine environments, whereas five populations (26% of all …</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2018-06-20T09:15:04Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Nelson, Karin</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2004</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
