PhD work title: Investigating the breeding phenology of a threatened amphibian (Hyla wrightorum)
Grace is studying the ecology of intermittent stock tanks within the Coronado Forest of southeastern Arizona. Specifically, she is using acoustic recorders to investigate the breeding phenology of the Arizona treefrog (Hyla wrightorum), a species of concern in Arizona. Grace's work aims to address knowledge gaps in the spatial and temporal dynamics of this species.
