Southern Rocky Mountains ARMI (Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative) - Survey DataEntry ID: USGS_FORT_SRockyMtns_ARMI
Abstract: In 2000, the President of the United States and the Congress directed the Department of the Interior (DOI) agencies to develop a plan to initiate monitoring of trends in amphibian populations on DOI lands and conduct research into causes of declines. The result of this mandate is the Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI). In the Rocky Mountain region, research is conducted in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO, Great Sand Dunes National Monument, CO, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, CO, and Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge, WY.
Purpose: To determine where amphibian populations are present, to develop inventory lists, and to investigate potential causes of population declines.
