Eastern red-backed salamanders are important indicators of forest health.They are abundant, sensitive to environmental change, permanent forest residents, and play an important role in ecosystem function and carbon storage as predators of soil invertebrates. In this talk, Brooks Mathewson, ecologist, educator, and photographer, will discuss his work and share images of these fascinating amphibians.

Brooks’ research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and his photography has appeared in textbooks, magazines, and newspapers and has been exhibited widely including at the National Science Foundation.
