This measure tracks changes in presence and absence of three amphibian species at 43 potential breeding sites. Each site is visited twice (where possible), to estimate and account for detection probability the Western Toad (Bufo boreas), Columbia Spotted Frog (Rana luteiventris), and Long-toed salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum). Mount Revelstoke National Park will monitor these amphibian species using this protocol once every 3 years.

Kootenay National Park samples 28 randomly selected potential amphibian breeding sites (out of possible 66) to determine presence or absence of amphibian species. Each of the 28 sites is visited 3 times every 2 years and all detected species are recorded.

Yoho National Park samples 28 randomly selected potential amphibian breeding sites (out of possible 66) to determine presence or absence of amphibian species. Each of the 28 sites is visited 3 times every 2 years and all detected species are recorded.

Amphibians are vulnerable to an array of
environmental changes because of their
permeable skin, a complex life history, and a dependence on moist terrestrial or wetland habitats. These attributes make them excellent indicators of the health of aquatic ecosystems. Amphibians can indicate problems of air and water pollution, drought, habitat loss and
fragmentation, the introduction of non-native species such as sport fish and bullfrogs, and the emergence and spread of infectious disease. Amphibian occupancy is determined using auditory and visual encounters surveys.

The health of individual amphibians, amphibian populations, and their wetland habitats are monitored in the oil sands region and at reference locations. Contaminants assessments are done at all sites. Amphibians developing near oil sands activities may be exposed to concentrations of oil sands-related contaminants, through air emissions as well as water contamination. The focus of field investigations is to evaluate the health of wild amphibian populations at varying distances from oil sands operations.

Amphibians around the world are in decline and this has led to many international initiatives to monitor and catalog amphibian biodiversity.
The western toad (Bufo boreas) found in Jasper National Park is a species of special concern protected under the Federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). Jasper National Park conducts auditory and visual amphibian surveys to estimate species occurrence. Occupancy modelling of amphibians in the Park, using presence/absence data, provides a useful and flexible framework for population trend analyses and helps inform management.

We surveyed the presence of four native amphibian species in wetlands throughout the eastern section of Banff National Park. This dataset represents detection or non-detection for each of the four species. We performed auditory and visual surveys of 60 pre-determined breeding sites . We surveyed each site two times during a sampling period between mid-April and the end of May.

Subalpine wildflower meadows occur at high elevations in mountainous environments, and are characterized by spectacularly diverse and showy wildflower meadows interspersed with stands of subalpine tree species. The subalpine wildflower meadows on the summit of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier are world renowned for their beautiful floral displays and ecological importance. However, the meadows are at risk of changing due to climate change and human influences. In 1974, meadow communities on the summit area of Mount Revelstoke were documented.

This project measures air quality at an Environment Canada Global Atmospheric Passive Sampling (GAPS) station located at Miller Lake in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are collected using a sorbent-impregnated polyurethane foam (SIP) disk and concentrations are assessed annually.
