Vernal Pools: Wicked Big Puddles or Critical Wildlife Habitat?

Monday, April 10, 2017

Cosponsored with the Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon

Vernal pools play an indispensable role in the life cycle of many amphibian species.  VT Center for Ecostudies Conservation Biologist Steve Faccio will focus on the ecology of vernal pools with an emphasis on the amphibians that depend upon them for breeding. He will discuss the characteristics of vernal pools, the life histories and ecology of the unique assemblage of wildlife, both amphibian and invertebrates, that utilize vernal pools, and the roles these small, inconspicuous wetlands play in our forest ecosystems.  Steve also will discuss conservation issues surrounding vernal pools, including his research radio-tracking salamanders and investigating mercury levels in vernal pool “foodwebs."

A co-founder of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, Steve Faccio is a Conservation Biologist with wide-ranging interests and skills as a scientist, naturalist, writer, and photographer. With over 25 years’ experience, much of his work at VCE is focused on forest ecology, including long-term population monitoring of forest songbirds, ecology of pool-breeding amphibians, and vernal pool mapping and conservation. Steve received his MS in zoology from Southern Connecticut State University, where he studied the activity patterns and habitat selection of a reintroduced population of fishers. Prior to grad school, Steve worked for the Connecticut Wildlife Division on a variety of field projects, ranging from monitoring and management of Piping Plovers and Least Terns, to snow tracking surveys for rare furbearers, interpreting over-wintering behavior of Bald Eagles at the Shepaug Dam Observation Area, and radio-tracking fishers.
