Understanding the scales over which land use affects animal populations is critical for conservation planning, and it can provide information about the mechanisms that underlie correlations between species distributions and land use. We used a citizen science database of anuran surveys to examine the relationship between road density, land use and...

... Surprisingly, we found that populations of both spring and summer breeding species, as well as species that overwinter in soil and in stream beds, were sensitive to observed winter severity, with warmer temperatures and increasing days of snow cover increasing occupancy for many species. This illustrates that changing winter conditions may have long-term consequences for anuran species across a range of breeding phenology and life history characteristics across large spatial scales, in contrast to other investigations (Gibbs & Breisch, 2001;Marsh et al., 2017). ...
