NW PARC 2012 Annual Meeting


Amphibians and Reptiles in My Project Area;  Conservation Genetics

The 2012 meeting was held in Portland and Hood River, Oregon, in conjunction with the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate Biology and the Pacific Northwest Native Freshwater Mussel Workgroup. The first day in Portland included a number of speakers discussing considerations for improving habitats for amphibians, instructions on how to build a snake hibernaculum, and mitigation designs such as water escape ramps. During the second day in Hood River, NW PARC hosted a Conservation Genetics workshop, as well as several speakers addressing such topics as the role of photography in conservation, the interactive effects of wildfire, forest management and isolation on amphibian and parasite abundance, and malarial infections in western fence lizards.
