dc.description.abstractMona Island is a Natural Reserve under the management of the Department of Natural Environment Resources (DNER). Mona Island iguana (Cyclura cornuta stejnegeri), is an endemic reptile species of this region which is considered endangered. A headstarting program has been implemented since 1999 by the DNER for Mona Island iguana. It is desired to predict how long it will take for an animal to achieve the minimum size required for release. In early stages a linear growth equation can be a good approximation. Hierarchical linear models are used for analyzing the growth of iguanas in the headstart facility. These models incorporate explanatory variables such as sex and cohort (1999-2000) or (2004-2005)
