Amphibian Research Lab @ Bucknell University

Ecology, Ethology & Conservation

Current Research Focuses

Our research group is broadly interested in ecology, ethology and conservation of amphibians (and some reptiles). Our current projects focus on: 1) Interspecific interactions between wood frogs and spotted salamanders, 2) Effects of road salt pollution on an aquatic community, 3) Parental care behavior of Japanese giant salamanders, and 4) Population assessment of giant salamanders using environmental DNA.
