Poplation dynamics of the Columbia spotted frog (Rana luteiventris): inference from long-term demography

I examined the population dynamics of a high elevation population of the pond-breeding amphibian Rana luteiventris. Understanding the natural dynamics of this species in relation to environmental variation informs us about the natural history of this species, helps identify how different environmental stressors may impact the population, and may elucidate key processes important to other populations of the same species or other species inhabiting mountain environments.
