Amphibian population dynamics, adaptive management, and endangered species conservation and management.
My thesis defines habitat quality for four Puerto Rican frog species (Eleutherodactylus wightmanae, Eleutherodactylus brittoni, Eleutherodactylus antillensis and Eleutherodactylus cochranae) in terms of demographic parameters and climatic covariates. I will determine levels of abundance, distribution and reproduction at surveyed sites which will give insight intro transient dynamics. I will also determine critical thermal maxima for the four Eleutherodactylus species previously mentioned.
