Summary

Water, sediment, anuran food (leaf litter and detritus) and whole body larval amphibian composites were analyzed for over 100 current-use pesticides from 24 wetlands representing land-use gradients in the New Jersey Pinelands, USA during 2014-2016. Emerging amphibian pathogens, Ranavirus and Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) were also assessed in individual larvae at the 24 wetlands. Tables in this data release contain the results from these analyses, with quality assurance summaries, along with site information, including land-use classifications.

Purpose

The study was designed to compare the functional equivalency of natural ponds and two types of created wetlands: excavated ponds and stormwater basins by analyzing them for current-use pesticides and emerging amphibian pathogens. Sites were selected based on land-use classifications within a 500 meter radius around each wetland from a pool of natural ponds, excavated ponds and stormwater basins determined as part of a larger study by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission. Water, bed sediment, anuran food (e.g., algae, leaves, detritus) and larval frogs were collected from four reference (minimum land-use impact) and four degraded (maximum land-use impact) from each wetland type for a total of 24 wetlands throughout the Pinelands National Preserve, New Jersey, 2014-16. The percent of altered land ranged from 0 to 60 % for the natural ponds, 0 to 64% for the excavated ponds and 23-79% for the stormwater basins. Prevalence of Ranavirus was determined based on tail clips collected from 60 individual larval frogs in each pond. Ten animals from each pond were swabbed for the presence of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd). Other constituents collected at each pond included turbidity, pH, specific conductance, dissolved organic carbon, total dissolved nitrogen, percent organic carbon in sediment, and larval frog lipid content.
