Michael J Adams

I lead the USGS Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) and the Herpetological Research Team at the Forest and Rangeland Science Center in Corvallis, Oregon

Research in my lab focuses on amphibian conservation issues. We are currently addressing issues such as invasive species, disease, land use change, and long-term monitoring design for amphibians in North America. We use a combination of comparative surveys and manipulative experiments to understand the factors affecting amphibian distribution and abundance.
