The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 214 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Prior to the start of the 1999 amphibian breeding season, four, 30.5-meter long drift fences, each with 8 pitfall traps (consisting of two #10 cans attached end to end) buried along their length, were established at two different forested wetlands. Pitfall traps were typically opened on rainy days or when rain was expected overnight, and then checked the following morning. These two wetlands were targeted for drift fence sampling because of their relatively large size (ca. 1-acre each), their central location within the park, and their accumulations of sphagnum mosses and raised hummocks. These characteristics identified them as potential breeding habitats for several amphibian species including the rare and secretive Four-toed Salamander (Hemidactylium scutatum), a species listed as one of Special Concern in Vermont.
