During the summer of 2002 a wide-ranging search for tailed frogs was conducted in the Kalum and North Coast Forest Districts. The goals were to clearly define the boundaries of the coastal tailed frog's northern range limit, to determine the environmental factors affecting distribution along a trans-mountain transect from coast to interior, to survey extensively within specific watersheds to gain insight on watershed level distribution, and finally to sample elevational transects along individual streams to gain insight on sub-population vertical distribution patterns.
