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
