Frog Abundance - Georgian Bay Islands
Abundance and diversity of frogs and toads is a good indicator for assessing ecological integrity. The park visually counts adult frogs and toads in coastal wetlands after the breeding season. This method does not permit assessment of early breeding species and may overestimate frog abundance because these surveys coincide with mass emergence of newly developed frogs, which are subjected to very high mortality rates.
