Abstract: Tomasek et al describe the protocols used in an ongoing research project on amphibian and reptile diversity at Cool Springs Environmental Education Center near New Bern NC. Herpetofaunal surveys have been conducted for the past five years on a 1700-acre site owned by the Weyerhaeuser Corp. Four protocols have been utilized too capture and compile a list of reptiles and amphibians--these protocols can be duplicated to some degree on almost any school site with some small acreage.
