My work addresses questions concerning the factors that limit the distribution and abundance of amphibians and reptiles. It focuses on identifying environmental factors responsible for declines in amphibian and reptile populations and on the development of approaches to better monitor changes in populations. It also seeks to provide a scientific basis for species conservation and to assist natural resource managers in the development of successful conservation strategies and management actions.
