Amphibian spring migration to a small pond was monitored using a drift fence and pitfall traps from 1996-1999 at the VINS Bragdon Preserve in Woodstock, Vermont, USA. Additionally, captures of small mammals were also recorded.
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 44 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The personnel involved in the project:
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.
