CNHP Zoologist Brad Lambert is an author on two newly published, peer-reviewed papers;
Pilliod, D.S., Muths, E., R.D. Scherer, P.E. Bartelt, P.S. Corn, B.R. Hossack, B.A. Lambert, R. McCaffery, and C. Gaughan. 2010. Effects of amphibian chytrid fungus on individual survival probability in wild boreal toads. Conservation Biology, published online: Apr 20 2010.
Muths, E., R.D. Scherer, and B.A. Lambert. 2010. Unbiased survival estimates and evidence for skipped breeding opportunities in females. Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 1, 123-130.
Brad has been studying boreal toads (Bufo boreas) in Colorado since 1999, and has contributed a great deal of information about the species and the threats it faces. This information is very valuable to the scientific, natural resource management, and conservation communities. These two papers use data from Brad’s studies and were written in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Society, CSU faculty, and others, and add to Brad’s growing list of publications. Congratulations Brad!
