Amphibian conservation in agricultural landscapes


June 2007 - October 2009


1) Landscape-level modeling - determine if extent spatial, pattern and intensity of agricultural land use affect the composition of the amphibian community
2) Field experimental studies - determine if water chemistry affects growth and development in natural amphibian populations and stream food web communities.
3) Laboratory studies - determine if agricultural compounds alter amphibian thyroid function and gonad morphology at environmentally relevant concentrations
