Amphibian Inventory and Monitoring Techniques; Amphibian Diseases
The 2011 meeting was held in Gig Harbor, Washington, in conjunction with the Washington Chapter of The Wildlife Society and the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate Biology. The morning part of the meeting was spent in the classroom discussing basics of amphibian identification, as well as inventory design considerations and different inventory techniques. In the afternoon, participants went to the field to learn about using such methods as electroshocking, funnel traps, and cover objects. The second day included a workshop on disease with presentations on fungal diseases, ranavirus, water molds, and malformations and trematodes.
