Initially my goal was to examine relationships between vegetation composition and structure and amphibian abundance within Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge (ONWR). Unfortunately, the data were unsuitable for extrapolating species-habitat relationships beyond the sampled areas (Appendix A). Therefore, I examined ways of restoring natural processes (i.e., fire) responsible for creating vegetative diversity and patchiness within which amphibians have evolved.
