Monitoring amphibian-populations in their breeding waters and terrestrial habitats

Abstract

Monitoring amphibian-populations in their breeding waters and terrestrial habitats. The aim is to study the effects of ecological farming on amphibians and their habitats. Therefore the reproducing species their spawn, larva and juveniles are counted at the breeding waters of Hof Ritzerau by semi-quantitative methods. To get information on terrestrial habitats, the amphibians captured in pitfalls of the current ground beetles study and in future also nightly observations of amphibians along transects are analysed. The focus here is primarily on arable land and field margins.
