Amphibian Identification – Online – April 16th, 2024

  •  16 April 2024
     2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

While observing many amphibians can be quite challenging, the importance of being able to identify them is on the rise due to increasing interest in understanding their populations better. Given their utilization of both terrestrial and aquatic habitats, diverse array of characteristics across various life stages, diminutive size, and minimal environmental traces, we often need to employ resourcefulness in identifying amphibian species. In this course, we will delve into the optimal seasons and habitats for amphibian observation, methods for identification across all life stages, and techniques for auditory identification. The Amphibian Identification MicroCourse caters to environmental professionals seeking to expand their expertise in amphibian work or refine their skills, as well as to amateur nature enthusiasts eager to distinguish among amphibian species. 

Topics covered will include: 

  • Groups of amphibians and distinguishing features 
  • How to identify in each life stage 
  • Male/female differentiation 
  • Identifying by call (auditory identification) 
  • Habitat and seasonal land use: how it can help us with identification 
  • Using dichotomous keys  
  • Identification apps 

Course will be 4 hours long.
