Summary

Vernal pools of the northeastern United States are important breeding habitat for amphibians. These wetlands typically fill with water from autumn to early spring and dry by summer. Under projections of future climate, some pools may dry earlier than is typical, which in some cases could make it difficult for amphibians to complete metamorphosis successfully. This study evaluated the factors controlling vernal pool inundation (i.e., whether or not a pool has water in it) and generated model predictions of pool-inundation probability under a variety of weather and climate scenarios (e.g., dry, average, and wet weather, and future climate scenarios for the middle and end of the 21st century). Model predictions were used to identify possible [...]
