Population[edit]

It says 6500 in one reference and 650 in another.

  1. ^ Cite error: The named reference Humphrey was invoked but never defined (see the help page).
  2. ^ "Federal Aid Sought as the Woodrat's Time Runs Out". Miami Herald. 21 March 1984. pp. 1D. Retrieved 9 February 2010. 

So, which is the right information to have? Dream Focus 23:22, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

I checked, and 6500 appears to be the correct figure. This is from the study by Humphrey (1988), who says that earlier estimates by Barbour and Humphrey (1982) were too low. That paper has an estimated total population of 654 (p. 117), and that's presumably where the Miami Herald got its data from. Ucucha 23:32, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
