Natural pond surveys
Surveys of ponds throughout the vicinity are being collated into a large database including land-use, water chemistry, and a variety of biotic variables. An emerging collaboration between Tyson researchers (Dr. Kevin Smith, Amber Burgett, Beth Biro), Saint Louis University Researchers (Dr. Jason Knouft), the University of Missouri (Dr. Ray Semlitsch and colleagues), and the Missouri Department of Conservation is using this survey to document amphibian communities and their responses to physio-chemical and biotic variables.
