Ultraviolet Radiation/Amphibian Populations Workshop Report (Duluth, MN, February 1-3, 1999) This was a two-year effort to investigate the UV dose in amphibian habitats in six PRIMENet parks: Acadia, Great Smoky Mountains, Rocky Mountain, Glacier, Olympic, and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks. In Olympic, Glacier, and Sequoia-Kings Canyon, research will focus on pond-dwelling amphibians. See the Amphibian Monitoring Project web site for pictures of amphibians, research techniques and some results.
