    About This Project

    I'm studying amphibian communities in the Southern High Plains of Texas. Amphibian species in the region rely on shallow, depressional wetlands known as playas. Changes in amphibian communities often warn of surface water pollution that could potentially have implications for human health. I hypothesize that proximity to agricultural operations will decrease wetland habitat quality, species richness, and relative abundance, as well as increase rate of abnormalities within communities.
