Occupancy and Abundance of the Streamside Salamander (Ambystoma Barbouri) in Relation to Land-use, Water Chemistry, and Flow Rate in Central Kentucky Streams

Grants and Contracts Details


We propose a two-year project focused on 1) Conducting field surveys to determine patterns of occupancy and abundance, 2) Evaluating the relationship between local and landscape scale habitat associations and A. barbouri vital rates and 3) evaluating mechanisms (i.e., water chemistry and frequency and flow rate) potentially responsible for population patterns. Scope of work is organized into the following tasks: 1. Study site selection 2. Field surveys and other field data collection 3. Laboratory analysis 4. Statistics and ecological modeling 5. Report preparation (progress and final) 6. Progress and final reports
