Calling Frog and Toad Surveys In West Virginia 2000

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

Beginning in 2000 West Virginia will survey its frogs and toads by establishing a roadside calling survey. The effort is part of the NAAMP (North American Amphibian Monitoring Program), which is a confederation of concerned individuals, including scientists and citizens, interested in developing statistically sound long-term monitoring programs for tracking amphibian populations. The group started in 1994 in response to reports of widespread amphibian declines. NAAMP receives some support in the form of advice on statistics and coordination from the Biological Resources Division (BRD) of the United States Geological Survey, which has also been integral in the successful Breeding Bird Survey. Currently every state in the East with only a few exceptions is running frog calling routes or is in the process of establishing routes. Ideally, the program will provide landowners, biologists, managers and others with information on the status of frogs within specific regions or across state boundaries across whole ranges of species.
