Dr. Pitt and students publish a natural history note

Dr. Amber Pitt and Bloomsburg University undergraduate students Marisa Buckle, Erick Wahlman, and Victoria DiTomo co-authored a natural history note entitled, “Anaxyrus americanus (American toad). Arboreal behavior” that was published in the peer-reviewed journal Herpetological Review. The note describes an observation of arboreal behavior exhibited by an American toad. Arboreal behavior has not been previously documented for American toads. The article can be downloaded from:
