    About This Project

    Salamander populations are currently a focus of conservation efforts due to population declines caused by issues such as habitat loss and fungal infections. The goal of this study is to understand how different habitat conditions effect salamander distributions in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Specifically, I am interested in the effects of habitat conditions on salamander behavior, stress, and body condition.
