Salamanders and Algae: From Roommates to Intimate Partners

Event has passed

Friday, April 30

Each spring the vernal pools throughout our region host a flurry of activity just below the surface. Amphibians meet in these locations to reproduce, leaving behind their eggs and offspring. Dr. John Burns of Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences visits our local vernal pools to study the symbiotic relationship between algae and spotted salamander eggs and larva. Join us from 10-11 a.m. for a Zoom presentation to learn about his work, hosted by the Boothbay Region Land Trust.
