Sites with Common Goals

Amphibians and Reptiles of North Carolina This web site describes the biology and conservation of North Carolina's amphibians and reptiles. Developed by Mike Dorcas' Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Class at Davidson College, the site has a "field guide" section describing every amphibian and reptile found in North Carolina including photographs of most species. The site also describes conservation efforts in North Carolina and in and around the Davidson area. A section on Facts and Myths and a section "Just for Kids" are also available. Soon, frog calls of all North Carolina species will be available online with a quiz to test yourself on call recognition. If you would like to contribute calls or images or if you would like to publicize your herp project on the site, please contact Mike Dorcas, midorcas@davidson.edu.
