The Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program

The Great Lakes ecosystem of North America is the largest system of fresh surface water on earth and provides valuable services ranging from clean drinking water sources to wildlife viewing. Several of these services depend on the presence of vigorous, healthy wetlands - both along the coastline and in interior areas. Many of these wetlands have been lost through draining or filling, degraded by pollution inputs, or altered by invading plants and animals. Among wetland types, marshes (those dominated by emergent plants like cattail, sedges, or bulrush) are especially important habitat for a wide array of wildlife species.

Survey of Bullfrogs Lithobates catesbeianus, formerly Rana catesbeiana in British Columbia

Evidence is accumulating that introduced bullfrogs Lithobates catesbeianus, formerly Rana catesbeiana have outcompeted and displaced native amphibians from large areas of the lower Fraser Valley and southeastern Vancouver Island. Therefore, it has become very important to map the location of bullfrog populations and to monitor their abundance and range expansion.
