Abstract: There is a lack of quantitative work on amphibian communities located in second-growth forests in British Columbia. The relative abundance, variation in capture rates, and movement patterns of terrestrial salamanders were investigated in 6 second-growth sites located in the University of British Columbia’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest. These data indicate that while amphibian species richness is similar among sites, total abundance is highly variable both within and among species between sites, with coefficients of variation in capture rates ranging from 44.2% to 245%. This high natural variation in amphibian abundance between forested sites of similar age and structure emphasizes the importance of collecting baseline data before drawing conclusions about the impacts of forest harvesting on amphibians. In addition, aquatic-breeding salamanders (Ambystoma gracile and Taricha granulosa) moved significantly greater distances and their direction of movement was generally parallel to the stream, while...
