Table 1 Frequency of amphibian species encounters (number of sites occupied per number of sites sampled) during dipnet and call surveys at 25 wetlands on Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, from December through April 2009 to 2010 (Pre) and 2011 to 2012 (Post). All sites were sampled in pre-treatment year, but three sites were not surveyed for calling anurans and seven sites were not dipnetted in the post-treatment year.
