We sampled 20 collection sites (Table 2) that included all 4 habitat types (open marsh, wooded lowlands, wooded slopes, open agricultural land) in KMWA. Collection sites selected were those that contained suitable habitat for amphibians.
These 2 anuran species were also the most abundant on the KMWA (n = 104 and n = 117, respectively; Table 3), comprising 50.3% of all individual amphibians observed.
Abundant habitat exists on the site for pond breeding caudates of the genus Ambystoma, which utilize ephemeral (and hence largely fish-free) bodies of water like those that exist in many of the flooded forest areas in KMWA. We found larvae, recent metamorphs, and juveniles of A.
This area is unusual because it is of relatively high elevation within the KMWA (900 ft; marsh elevation is 837 ft) and, unlike most of KMWA, does not periodically flood.
Six of his collecting sites were in Franklin Township (his other sites were not near KMWA).
Two caudates, Hemidactylium scutatum and Plethodon cinereus, are known to occur in the townships we surveyed, but they were not found at KMWA by either Allen (1963) or us.
The amphibian community at KMWA appears to have changed little since Allen's (1963) survey 40 years ago.
