Research: Assessment of the Effect of Different Patch Habitats and Landscape Structure on Richness, Abundance, and Amphibian Diversity in an Agricultural Landscape of Costa Rican Atlantic Zone
Species/Topic: Amphibians (Frogs, Salamanders)
Abstract: This project will investigate the relationship between richness, abundance and amphibian diversity in different patch habitats, to determine which patch habitat is selecting amphibian species in a landscape of the Costa Rica Atlantic Zone. The study will determine if landscape variables influence richness, abundance and amphibian diversity. The results will be disseminated to the local farmers through workshops.
