Who can see your viewing activity?
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”?
Do they just suddenly metamorphose? Or is it gradual?
I’d buy that T shirt
Could you talk about blue spotted/Jeff complex or female populations?

what is the best location to find yellow-spotted salamanders this time of year? How far from the pool itself do they live?
Always amazing, Matt. Thank you so much!
Is Lincoln considering one of those under road tunnels for salamander migrations that the northern suburbs installed??
Thank you. Loved this.
I put questions in chat to Matt direct

when we see little frogs hopping over the road at night, as they likely to be headed to a vernal pool? sometimes this is not in early spring!
Thank you so much for a great presentation. I used to see orange salamanders in the woods as a child. Are they in New England
do individual wood frogs breed each year or only once in their individual lives
do marbled salamanders eat fairy shrimp that hatch early in Feb?
are there tardigrades in vernal pools?
Do Only males salamanders congress or do females join them?
Thank you for a great presentation! You are a great speaker!
Thanks so much for all the excellent information (I have always been a Matt Burne fan) - especially liked the art!
Thank you! Great presentation!
Thanks for the interesting presentation.
Thank you for tying things back to climate change, too.
