Flatwoods Salamander Wetland Vegetation Monitoring
In order to understand how to improve habitat for these declining species of flatwoods salamander, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is conducting vegetation surveys at ephemeral ponds known to have salamander occupancy and successful nesting. The goal of this project is to establish a baseline for monitoring how optimal nesting habitat changes under management treatment efforts.
