Vernal Pool Conservation in Connecticut: An Assessment and Recommendations

Evan L. Preisser, Jennifer Yelin Kefer, Jessica D. Lawrence, Tim W. Clark
2000 Environmental Management  
As habitat fragmentation and degradation increase, some vernal pool amphibian species are declining in numbers. Uneven implementation of state regulations further hampers effective conservation.  ...  These recommendations can foster awareness of vernal pools as unique habitats, increase protection of these areas, and expand citizen participation in the vernal pool regulatory process.  ...  In addition, many local leaders on wetland protection issues gave unselfishly of their time throughout this process. We would particularly like to thank Doug Hoskins and Bruce Fellman.  ...
