"Effects of Forest Management on Amphibians and Amphibian
Habitats in a Changing Global Environment" contains
multi-resource data (hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation,
fauna) from four temporary forest ponds. The purpose of the data
is to identify a representative sample of temporary ponds within
the Swift River watershed; monitor amphibian populations within ... and adjacent to the sample ponds; assess aquatic and terrestrial
amphibian habitats; and evaluate the effects of global change
attributes and forest management practices on amphibians and
Collection Organization: Robert T. Brooks, USDA Forest Service
Collection Methodology: A sample of temporary ponds identified.
Drift-fence arrays constructed at each pond for monitoring
amphibian populations. Ponds and pond basin attributes
quantified. The effects of habitat acidification evaluated.
Changes in precipitation patterns assessed through analysis of
the relationship of ambient precipitation patterns and amphibian
