AFSRC has the research objectives to create management strategies and forage plant communities that expand the spatial and temporal boundaries of forage production; optimize resource utilization in pasture-based livestock production systems; and benefit biological diversity and ecosystem stability for the Appalachian Region. A collaborative study was conducted to determine how red-backed salamanders (woodland salamanders) respond to traditional pasture and silvopasture treatments within the central Appalachian Mountains of southern West Virginia. This picture shows an unusual red-backed salamander, with a forked tail, captured during study.
