Originator: Stephen O. MacDonald - somacdonald@gilanet.com
Website URL: http://seakgis.alaska.edu/data/amphib.zip
Abstract: The dataset contains the recorded locations of amphibians collected in Southeast Alaska from 1867 to 2002. The records were compiled from 15 university and museum collections in the US and Canada. The data contain records for the following species: Northwestern Salamander, Long-toed Salamander, Roughskin Newt, Western Toad, Pacific Chorus Frog, Columbia Spotted Frog, Wood Frog, and the Red-legged Frog.
Purpose: The original database was converted into a GIS layer to create maps showing the distribution of amphibian species in Southeast Alaska. The layer does not provide population or habitat information about these species.
