Description

My project aims at understanding how recreational trails have shaped terrestrial salamanders' presence and conditional abundance in the Arcata Community Forest. In this project, I aim to answer if hiking trails affect the presence and abundance patterns of the California Slender Salamander (Batrachoseps attenuates). To address my question, I conducted my research in two months, from February to April, at the Arcata Community Forest. I conducted my research on two different trails. The first is the Short Trail (0.11 miles), and the second is Redwood Park Trail (0.28 miles). This information is crucial to the conservation and management of salamanders as they are an indicator species.
