Impacts of road deicing salt on the demography of vernal pool-breeding amphibians.
It is argued that efforts to protect local populations of A. maculatum and R. sylvatica in roadside wetlands should, in part, be aimed at reducing application of road salt near wetlands with high conductivity levels.
Effects of Warming Conditions in Eastern North American Forests on Red‐Backed Salamander Morphology
The combined forces of regional climate warming and, particularly, forest disturbance have evidently been sufficient to cause morphological evolution in this amphibian over the last century.
Are embryonic and larval green frogs (Rana clamitans) insensitive to road deicing salt
- N. Karraker
- Environmental Science
Examination of the effects of road salt on an amphibian that breeds in permanent wetlands, the Green Frog, for comparison with prior research on vernal pool-breeding species found it to be relatively tolerant to road salt at low and moderate concentrations and less sensitive than other North American amphibians.
Amphibian production in forested landscapes in relation to wetland hydroperiod: A case study of vernal pools and beaver ponds
Road deicing salt irreversibly disrupts osmoregulation of salamander egg clutches.
Effect of road deicing salt on the susceptibility of amphibian embryos to infection by water molds.
Long-term impacts of even-aged timber management on abundance and body condition of terrestrial amphibians in Northwestern California
Reproductive Biology and Natural History of the White-lipped Pit Viper ( Trimeresurus albolabris Gray, 1842) in Hong Kong
The ecology, demography, reproductive states, and growth rates of T. albolabris in Hong Kong, China are reported on to increase the understanding of sexual dimorphism, reproduction, and evolution of the cryptic Trimeresurus species complex.
String theory: reducing mortality of mammals in pitfall traps
- N. Karraker
- Environmental Science, Biology
The results indicated that this method reduces mammal mortality in pitfall traps while preventing amphibians from escaping, however, reptiles may be capable of using strings to escape pitfalls traps.
Demographic Evidence of Illegal Harvesting of an Endangered Asian Turtle
The effects of illegal harvesting on the demography of populations in Hong Kong were examined using mark-recapture methods to compare demographic characteristics between sites with harvesting histories and one site in a fully protected area.
