Wildlife in Managed Forests: Stream-associated Amphibians

One-quarter of amphibians in the Pacific Northwest depend on headwater streams for food, cover and breeding habitat. Most of these headwaters originate in forestland. This publication introduces readers to the common amphibians of the region and explores the relationship between forest management and amphibian health. It is part of OFRI’s “Wildlife in Managed Forests” series, developed for foresters, wildlife managers and landowners as well as interested parties such as conservation organizations, regulators and policymakers. Publications in the series synthesize current research findings about the habitat requirements and ecological roles of various wildlife species in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
