    Description

    I examined the species composition, species richness, and relative abundance of herpetofaunal communities on southwest-facing and northeast-facing slopes on the MOFEP sites. For the landscape-scale investigations, herpetofaunal communities on southwest- facing slopes were relatively similar, averaged 23.4 species/site, and had relative abundance estimates ranging from 14.4 to 38.2 captures/100 trap days. Communities on northeast-facing slopes were also relatively similar, averaged 23.2 species/site, and had relative abundance estimates ranging from 14.7 to 41.1 captures/100 trap days. For the small-scale investigations, herpetofaunal community similarity indices ranged from 0.56 to 0. 77 and relative abundance estimates ranged from 15.9 to 29.7 captures/100 trap days.
