Walk tonight, snow tomorrow??

We’ll have a salamander walk tonight (Monday April 14). Meet across from Bath Elementary at 8:45p. See here for additional details. The night will start off warm, but may drop down around 40 by the time we’re done. After that…1-3 inches of snow! So, we’ll try to retrieve animals from buckets before they get snowed on.

I'm a graduate student seeking to contribute to our understanding of how ecology, evolution, and their interplay contribute to the abundance and distribution of animal populations. Since 2011, I have been a part of the Niewiarowski Lab, where I help run a long-term demographic study of an Ohio breeding population of spotted salamanders.

  2. Scott Thomas says:

    We saw 3.5 salamander species (spotteds and their eggs, redbacks, newts, and the tail of a 4 toed) and 4 different frog/toads (peepers, wood frogs, toads, green frogs). The only spotted salamanders we saw were leaving the pond.
