Adam W. Green, Mevin B. Hooten, Evan H. Campbell Grant and Larissa L. Bailey Evaluating breeding and metamorph occupancy and vernal pool management effects for wood frogs using a hierarchical model Journal of Applied Ecology 50
We demonstrate that management actions targeting short-hydroperiod pools favourably influence both components of breeding success. However, continued monitoring is needed to determine whether managed pools remain suitable for wood frogs. With predicted changes in climate and a positive relationship between breeding occupancy and winter precipitation, a proactive focus on active management of vernal pools may provide a means to maintain wood frog populations in the future.
