New paper out on a high density population of salamanders in Richmond!

Those who have worked on the red-backed salamander project in the Grayson Lab know that there are TONS of salamanders in the James River Park. Now the world does too!

We recently published a paper in the Royal Society Open Science journal on the population ecology of our salamanders using spatial mark-recapture techniques. We are looking forward to future papers incorporating our data with data collected from other SPARCnet sites!
