  • Human disturbance can have negative effects on terrestrial amphibian populations. Recent work suggests that trails in natural areas can have variable effects on terrestrial salamander abundances and distributions. We studied the effects of unmaintained and maintained trails on the abundance of different morphs (striped and unstriped) and age classes (adult and juvenile) of eastern redback salamanders (Plethodon cinereus Green) in a local biological reserve. Salamanders were found in higher… CONTINUE READING
