Ecological status of the hellbender (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis) and the mudpuppy (Necturus maculosus) salamanders in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park


Abstract:
A survey of streams in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park revealed low populations of hellbenders (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis) and mudpuppies (Necturus maculosus). Water quality profiles indicated acidic conditions for Little River and Noland Creek, suggesting that monitoring efforts should be continued.
