Informing Amphibian Conservation: Non-breeding Season Movement and Habitat Use in Three Species of Pond-breeding Frogs

Hometown: Great Falls, Virginia 

Department: Biology

Advisor: Matthias Leu


Current amphibian conservation is focused largely on protecting breeding ponds. However, many species spend the majority of the year away from ponds, and little research has been done on nonbreeding season habitat. My Honors Thesis investigates nonbreeding season movement and habitat use in three species of native frogs (Green Tree Frogs, American Toads, Fowler's Toads). This research will allow for more informed amphibian conservation planning.
