Fire & Flatwoods Salamanders: Presentation by Jamie Barichivich

From Calendar: ACT Events & Activities

Location: Prairie Creek Lodge

From: November 5, 2015 at 6:30pm to: 8:00pm

Details:

WHAT
The Flatwoods Salamander is a rare and rapidly declining species (now two separate species, Frosted and Reticulated) that is now restricted to a handful of breeding sites in the coastal plain of FL, GA, and SC. They are intimately tied to the mesic longleaf pine-wiregrass ecosystem, which depends on routine low-intensity ground fires to maintain its structure and condition.

Jamie will discuss the relationship between fire, wetlands, and several regionally declining amphibians including Flatwood Salamanders, Ornate Chorus Frogs, and Striped Newts. He will also talk about the conservation needs for these species, particularly the implications for land management.

About our speaker:
Jamie is a Wildlife Biologist at the USGS Southeastern Ecological Science Center. During his tenure with USGS, he has studied a wide variety of organisms including marine turtles, sturgeon, and for the last 10 years, amphibians. His research has taken him from the Everglades north to Glacier National Park and as far west as Palau. He has a broad interest in a variety of topics from road mortality of wildlife to the effects of climate change on wetland hydrology and amphibians.
