Join Kevin Hamed, Associate Professor of Biology at Virginia Highlands Community College, as he updates the community on his research on salamanders in the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area. High elevation mountain peaks in the southern Appalachian Mountains are the epicenter of salamander evolution and a hotspot for plethodontid biodiversity. Long-term changes in climate and atmospheric deposition are potential threats to high-elevation salamanders.
