MSU Researchers Study Green Frogs at NJSOC

Dr's John Korky and John Smallwood publish their results in the Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society

Northern green frogs are commonly found throughout New Jersey in a variety of perma- nent, freshwater habitats.  Korky and Smallwood's study examined 124 field-collected larvae from five sites in three adjacent counties of northwestern New Jersey (Morris, Warren, Sussex), known as The Highlands. The purpose of the study was to: (1) document the occurrence of the taxon with habitat notes, (2) document geographic variation of 18 morphometric characters from selected sites using descriptive statistics, and (3) analyze patterns of variation among populations.  The full article can be accessed by clicking here.
