Authors: Erin L Muths
Data used in an assessment of the effects of snowpack, temperature and disease on demography in boreal toads in Wyoming.
Data Release Current use pesticides in larval amphibian tissues, amphibian pathogen and wetland sediment screening data from three northeastern National Wildlife Refuges, 2013-14
Authors: Kelly L Smalling; Adam Boehlke; L Iwanowicz; Michelle L Hladik; Keith A Loftin; R Femmer; Adrianne B Brand; Evan HC Grant
Outlet: U.S. Geological Survey Data Release
The data include concentrations of current use pesticides in tissues of larval wood frog (Lithobates sylvaticus) and spotted salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) and the presence of ranavirus in wood frogs and spotted salamanders from three northeastern National Wildlife Refuges sampled in 2013 and 2014. The data also include estrogenicity, protein phosphatase 2A inhibition and a suite of 15 major and minor elements in sediment screened using portable X-Ray Fluorescence. The data include sediment and tissue samples collected from 16 wetlands at the Patuxent Research Refuge (PRR) in central Maryland, USA, 15 wetlands at the Assabet River and Oxbow National Wildlife Refuges (EMASS) in eastern Massachusetts, USA, and nine wetlands at the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park (CHOH) near the border of Washington DC and Maryland, USA.

Data Release Data from a national survey for the amphibian chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans

This dataset provides the results of a national survey of the conterminous U.S. for the salamander chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative from May 2014 to August 2017. Sites were sampled by capturing amphibians by hand or by traps or nets that were then swabbed individually using methods that prevent sample contamination. All swabs were then analyzed using a real-time TaqMan PCR for detection of B. salamandrivorans on the extracted DNA. The data consist of locality information and data on the individual sampled, as well as the result of the test for B. salamandrivorans. No cases of B. salamandrivorans were detected in this study.
