Sampling Methods

Prior to the start of the 1996 amphibian breeding season, two drift fences with pitfall traps buried along the lengths of each fence, were established near a small farm pond. Pitfall traps were typically opened on rainy days or when rain was expected overnight, and then checked the following morning. Additionally, a metal minnow trap was placed in the pond overnight to capture adults that may have already arrived at the pond for breeding.
