Sheena will present research she and Tom Mann, fellow Conservation Resources Biologist at the Museum, have conducted on Webster's Salamanders. She will discuss the  population genetic structure of the salamander and how this knowledge allows us to better understand how habitat fragmentation impacts population connectivity and dispersal in this woodland species.
