How do you find frogs and other amphibians? Dr. Melissa Pilgrim, professor at USC Upstate, will tell you how. Due to the issue of global amphibian decline, conservation biologists and resource managers are increasingly interested in conducting research evaluating the presence and persistence of amphibians in a region. Dr. Pilgrim and her undergraduate research group, Upstate Herpetology, will show the audience standard techniques used to identify the presence and abundance of amphibians in the Piedmont region of South Carolina.
