Develop Inventory Protocols for frogs within the Region 1 Great Northern and Great Basin LCC, Protocol Development & Remote Audial Inventory

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Many refuges lack basic information on distribution of frogs, but conducting inventory surveys for frogs can be problematic. Different species breed at different times, breeding periods are often short and highly dependent on local weather and water conditions, and difference in life history and habits make some survey methods suitable for some species, but inappropriate for others. Despite these challenges, a suite of suggested survey protocols was developed to guide individual refuges needing more information on frog species. This project had 2 objectives. Objective 1: Protocol Development. Develop a suite of protocols, based on species. Refuges would be grouped by geography, habitat type, and frog species expected. Survey timing windows for different species would be identified based on survey method and refuge location. An amphibian expert would visit a subset of refuges to identify specific locations on individual refuges to focus survey efforts. Objective 2: Remote audial inventory. Test the use of remote audial recording devises to determine presence/absence of certain frog species.
