Eastern Red-Backed Salamander - Bruce Peninsula
Redback salamanders have a long lifespan, small home ranges and high site fidelity. They breathe entirely through their skin and the tissue lining in their mouths, which makes them sensitive to air- and waterborne pollutants, and thus a good indicator of environmental quality. Bruce Peninsula National Park measures salamander abundance using artificial cover boards at four sites.
