Pen Bay Pilot advances new amphibian study led by LeClair

StudyFinds reported on a new University of Maine-led study which found that fewer frogs died from vehicle collisions in spring 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, than during the season in other recent years. Greg LeClair, a University of Maine master’s student in ecology and environmental sciences, spearheaded the study to investigate how this slowdown in human activity in the early months of the pandemic would affect amphibian mortality. The Penobscot Bay Pilot shared the UMaine news release about the study.
