The goal of this study is to monitor changes in occupancy (presence/absence) of gopher frogs and other amphibian species at 98 breeding wetlands. We will also examine the effects of climate, habitat, wetland and landscape variables on the annual occupancy and reproductive success at breeding wetlands. This study will allow us to better understand the patterns and drivers of wetland occupancy, as well as determine the best methodology for future monitoring efforts.
