Description: The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the National Park Service, is studying hydrologic changes caused by uncontrolled wildfires and the effects of increased sediment transport and deposition on leopard frog habitat in the Rincon District of Saguaro National Park near Tucson, Arizona. Excessive sediment resulting from recent large fires has filled small basins within drainage channels that normally store water year round and provide habitat for the increasingly scarce l owland leopard frog. Habitat destruction has important implications for Park Service fire-management policies and maintenance of the dwindling population of frogs.
