Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report

Abstract

A Herpetological survey of the Little Wabash River basin, Illinois, was conducted to determine the status and distribution of the group. During the summers of 2006 and 2007, amphibians and reptiles were surveyed at 19 sites, using Visual Encounter Surveys, aquatic hoop traps, minnow traps, and incidental encounters. A total of 18 species was found. The most abundant species found was Acris crepitans, which was found at 14 sites. An examination of literature and museum records brings the total number of species recorded from the drainage to 46. The amphibian and reptile assemblage of the Little Wabash River basin is similar to those for other basins at similar latitudes within Illinois.
