Research Project: AMPHIBIAN MONITORING OF CEAP WETLANDS IN THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION

Location: Coastal Plain Soil, Water and Plant Conservation Research

Project Number: 6657-13000-009-04
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Sep 10, 2008
End Date: Sep 09, 2013

Objective:
To access the impact of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) implemented wetland projects in the Mid-Atlantic region on the populations and activities of amphibian.

Approach:
The presence or absence of amphibians in the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) implemented wetland projects will be accessed via a variety of techniques. These will include daytime vocalizations, egg mass counts, larval dipnet surveys, minnow trap surveys, and visual encounter surveys (VES) of adults and larvae. This will involve field visits to each site during appropriate seasons to conduct egg mass, larval, and VES. Frog loggers will be used to record calling male frogs.
