Department of Biology Redpath Museum & McGill University

Examining the functional impact of the invasive reed, Phragmites australis, on the dynamics of an endangered amphibian population.
Natasha Lukey
University of Waterloo

Adaptive Management of Invasive Bullfrogs, Lithobates catesbeiana, in the South Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
Amanda Kissel
Simon Fraser University

A field-based population study of the highly-endangered Oregon spotted frog (Rana pretiosa), with a population dynamics model to identify the most sensitive life history stages and evaluate a range of potential recovery strategies. This work will directly inform decisions of how to best allocate limited recovery funds for this species in Canada, and may provide a useful framework for declining amphibians more broadly.
