Current Research

My research focuses primarily on basic amphibian ecology and the impacts of forest management practices on amphibian communities. The long-range goals of my research are:

  • To determine the impacts of various forest management practices (including fragmentation) on amphibians
  • To determine likely consequences of climatic changes on amphibians
  • To develop guidelines for managing southern forest ecosystems to ensure healthy populations of amphibians
  • To develop and evaluate alternative monitoring protocols for amphibians
  • To develop and validate predictive habitat relationship models for amphibians.
