FrogWatch USA is a field-based program where you use your ears to distinguish among the calls of frogs and toads at wetland sites. However, participation in FrogWatch USA extends beyond the sound-focused field aspects by allowing you to explore and communicate visually the information collected by you and other volunteers, both past and present. This can be done through graphs and charts, as well as maps. To help you get started, FrogWatch USA has created some “starter” graphs designed to answer interesting research questions and guide you through some of the graphing tools available. We encourage you to customize each of these graphs based on your own interests, and to share them with your family and friends and with other FrogWatch USA volunteers.

Get started with these graphs:

Where can I expect to find this species? Does this species prefer drier or wetter habitats? Do two species share similar habitats?

How do calling species respond to different temperatures? At what temperature are you likely to hear a species call in a chorus?

At what temperature can I expect a species to call?

Which species has my chapter heard the most?

What frog and toad species are calling in my state? How does the frog and toad species composition change between two states?

Get started with these graphs:

What is the earliest observation of a species reported for FrogWatch USA? Does the likelihood of a species calling in a chorus change throughout the year?

Which species were observed by FrogWatch USA volunteers in 2012? How did 2012 compare to other years?

When do different frogs and toads call in my state? How does the calling composition change across different months? How do my observations compare with the observations of others in my state?
