Welcome to the Salamander Capital of the World


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Southern Appalachians is home to more than sixty species of salamanders in North Carolina. The salamander fauna is so diverse because as the Appalachian Mountains formed and evolved, the salamanders adapted to profound geologic and climatological changes. Many species are in serious decline due to diseases and water pollution.
