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 104 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.

To inventory frogs, a protocol established for the Vermont Calling Frog Survey was modified and used to sample the Pogue, the Field-Wetland, and the Hardwood-Wetland. A total of 10 listening stations were established; 6 around the Pogue, and 2 at each of the wetlands (Fig. 1). Systematic aural surveys of calling frogs occurred on rainy or humid nights throughout the spring and summer. At each station, all frogs heard calling during a 10-minute period were identified to species and their relative abundance estimated based upon the following codes: Code 1: Can clearly hear all individuals of a species and can count them easily – there is ample space (time) between calling individuals. Code 2: There is some overlap of calls between individuals of a species, but not so much as to make an accurate count impossible. Code 3: A full chorus. Calls for a species are constant, continuous, and overlapping.
