2016 breeding season starting this week

It looks like spring is here to stay in the Akron area. Forecasts this week are calling for warm temperatures and rain. That’ll bring the salamanders out in Steiner Woods. Keep an eye out for a walk announcement as we get closer to Thursday (March 10).


Here’s Windhover Pond on that 70 degree Saturday we had a few weeks back. The whole place was covered in snow 3 days earlier AND a few days later. What’s that quote from Merry in the Fellowship of the Ring? Something like: “I don’t think they know about second winter, Pip.”

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.
