On April 17 and 18, 2007 in Monterey County, Pete Trenham, Ph.D. will present a workshop on the biology and conservation of the California tiger salamander (CTS). Trenham has published a variety of papers on the ecology and life history of the California tiger salamander and has hosted this same workshop several times. The workshop will consist of a daytime classroom session on Wednesday, April 18 and a choice of attending a field session either on April 17 or 18. Workshop Objectives: This is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the biology of California tiger salamanders and also how this information can be applied to habitat management for this species. The information conveyed will be useful in large-scale and local conservation planning efforts. Topics discussed will include: the geographic distribution of California tiger salamanders and hybrid populations, upland and aquatic habitats and their management, movements, population and community ecology, survey methods, and methods for assessing potential project impacts and approaches for avoidance and minimization. Participants will receive field training in species identification, sampling techniques, and the habitat requirements of the California tiger salamander.
