Road Salt Impact on Amphibians
Run-off from roads brings salts (and other toxins) into wetland ecosystems that can have a negative effect on reproduction and survival of amphibian life. Steve’s research will develop a clearer understanding of how amphibians adapt to road salts. This will help managers gauge the severity of pollutant runoff and which species are adaptable.
