    Description

    The Chiricahua leopard frog (Rana chiricahuensis) was historically widespread in suitable habitat throughout its range. Reports of recent population declines led to inventories of Chiricahua leopard frog localities. Surveys reported here establish a new baseline of occurrence in the Galiuros: only two of 21 historical localities were found to be occupied in 2003. One of these sites may represent the only source population for the species in that mountain range. The species’ reduced occurrence in the Galiuros may reflect its situation elsewhere. To aid in tracking recovery action efficacy, we offer a framework for future monitoring of this threatened species.
