Abstract

"This report summarizes our findings on the response of adult salamanders to conductivity and covers a portion of our work between February 21 and August 23, 2006. We also include our results on salamander activity levels in response to dissolved oxygen (DO) in order to justify the oxygen levels we are currently testing in the 28 day oxygen toxicity experiment. Our next report will provide a detailed discussion of the effects of DO on salamander behavior, physiology and mortality. In this report, we cover all aspects of adult salamander response to conductivity, but we do not address the response of juvenile salamanders to conductivity. The 60 day juvenile growth response to conductivity will begin by the end of this month. The experiments reported here include the 28-day conductivity toxicity tests, righting response experiments, activity levels in response to conductivity and DO, and metabolic rates across conductivity ramps." -- Authors Open Access See Extended description for more information.
