Summary

This database represents the results of a two-year survey (2000-2001) of amphibians and reptiles in Olympic National Park. The database contains records of probabilistic surveys, which were terrestrial surveys for reptiles and amphibians conducted at sites corresponding to FIA points throughout ONP. Additionally, non-random sites were chosen for suitable herpetofaunal habitat and were surveyed under a protocol identical to the FIA surveys. A related database (Olympic National Park Terrestrial Herp Incidental Records 2000-01) contains records of incidental surveys, which were opportunistic, non-random surveys conducted throughout ONP in habitats deemed suitable for reptiles and amphibians.

Purpose

The purpose of this study was to document the species richness, distribution, and relative abundance of terrestrial amphibians and reptiles in ONP. There was high biological and management interest to inventory the current distribution of amphibian populations and to determine seasonal changes in detectability with repeated surveys at selected sites.
