Author: Bateman, Heather L.; Chung-MacCoubrey, Alice;

Date: 2011

Source: Herpetological Review. 42(2): 276-277.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Herein we report information on habitat, morphology, and activity from 813 captures of 505 individual Plestiodon obsoletus from riparian forest habitat along the middle Rio Grande in central New Mexico. We used toe-clipping during a mark-recapture study conducted from late May to mid-September each year from 2000 to 2006 to evaluate the effects of non-native plant and fuels removal on herpetofauna (Bateman et al. 2008. Restoration Ecol. 16:180-190).

Keywords: Plestiodon obsoletus, Great Plains skink
