Abstract

An article on the northern spring peeper, which appears to be abundant in Maine and is best known for its springtime mating concert. Although no major study of peepers has been done in Maine, the National Biological Service is promoting a monitoring program for each state. With their acutely sensitive, permeable skin, and because they spend most of their time in and around water, the condition of amphibians can be an effective gauge of factors affecting a water body.
