SANTIAGO ISLAND, GALAPAGOS - MARCH 200Y: Researchers measure an opuntia cactus on South Plaza Island as part of an ongoing project to track the ecological changes to the Galapagos. The cactus population on South Plaza has plummeted on in recent decades, the apparent victim of a burgeoning land iguana colony. The iguanas feed on the cactus flowers, leaving the plants no way to procreate. (Photo by Eric Rorer/Aurora)
