New county records from Grundy County, Tennessee on the Mid-Cumberland Plateau of Southern Tennessee, USA
The southeastern United States is known for its high herpetofaunal diversity, which can be partly explained by high habitat diversity (Bailey et al. 2006). However, there are still many areas within the southeast that are not well studied, with little scientific documentation of species composition. One such area is the mid-Cumberland Plateau, in particular Grundy Co., Tennessee. Previous documentations for the area can be found in Anderson and Tilley (2003), Fontanella et al. (2008), Miller and Niemiller (2007), Miller et al. (2005) and Williams (1988). However, most of these reports dealt with a single species. Miller et al. (2005) provided the most extensive documentation of species composition in and around Grundy Co..
