We just sent in our first application to certify a vernal pool. For novices, is there any benefit to using a survey methodology, such as "meander" or "transect" (which we would have to learn about) as opposed to "no method"?

Matt, do you know exactly what triggers the migration of the salamanders? is it the feel of the rain? the sound? Something else? It seems like in many recent years there have not been conditions for a “Big Night”. Do the salamanders just stop waiting and say “We gotta go no matter what”?
Kortni Wroten

Do they just suddenly metamorphose? Or is it gradual?
Kathleen Moore

Could you talk about blue spotted/Jeff complex or female populations?
Mary Elizabeth Patti
01:26:16
what is the best location to find yellow-spotted salamanders this time of year? How far from the pool itself do they live?
Christie Wyman
