Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Horse Island, at 17 acres, is one of the largest of the Thimble Islands off Stony Creek, a section of Branford, Connecticut. It is owned by Yale University and is maintained as an ecological laboratory by Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History. It was purchased and donated to the university in 1972 as a convenient addition to the Yale Coastal Field Station in nearby Guilford, which has its own dock and boats. Since then, however, the main thrust of biological research at Yale and elsewhere has turned intensively in the direction of molecular biology, and there is less active research conducted on the island.show more
