Title: Sampling methods for terrestrial amphibians and reptiles.

Author: Corn, Paul Stephen; Bury, R. Bruce.;

Date: 1990

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-256. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 34 p

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Methods described for sampling amphibians and reptiles in Douglas-fir forests in the Pacific Northwest include pitfall trapping, time-constrained collecting, and surveys of coarse woody debris. The herpetofauna of this region differ in breeding and nonbreeding habitats and vagility, so that no single technique is sufficient for a community study. A combination of pitfall trapping and hand collecting is the most effective approach.

Keywords: Amphibians, reptiles, sampling techniques, pitfall trapping, timeconstrained collecting, downed wood
