Zach and Jared Write Bangor Daily News Article on Vernal Pools

Zach and Jared teamed up to write a local newspaper article discussing the vibrant life found in vernal pools across Maine and how the unique nature of these pools can nurture healthier forests and waterways.  Also check out the really nice amphibian pictures by Kristine Hoffman (including the photo featured here).  Jared is conducting major portions of his PhD research as part of an NSF Coupled Natural Human Systems project that links the ecology of vernal pools and vernal-pool amphibians (including amphibian genetics) to the socioeconomic processes that influence human impacts on those pools.
