The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner with expertise in wildlife and conservation biology in support of a new research project focused on identifying the effects of changing climate, wildfire disturbance, degrading permafrost, and shifting landcover on anurans (e.g., Wood Frog, Lithobates sylvaticus) and their habitats in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, a forested, high-latitude, and disturbance-prone environment in Alaska, and other boreal environments where disturbance complexes interact to alter landscapes, habitats, and wildlife populations. Particularly interested in the relationships of spatial and temporal patterns of wildfire, wildfire severity, and shifting permafrost to anuran distributions (occupancy) and population dynamics (e.g., abundance, production). The expert will function as part of a multidisciplinary team of researchers and federal land managers to maximize our understanding of the vulnerability of anuran species to biotic and abiotic stressors, with the aim of providing information essential for conserving populations and habitats.
