The Effects of Eutrophication on the Green Frog Populations in Wisconsin
Green frogs serve a big purpose in the ecosystem they inhabit because they can help determine how healthy an ecosystem is. More and more lakes are becoming eutrophied, which can affect the aquatic life. By estimating frog call frequencies, a higher frequency is shown at lakes that are not eutrophied based solely off the collected data in the experiment. Although data acquired from the Wisconsin DNR showed otherwise, there was a remarkable trend in frog call frequencies and water temperature. It concludes, from required data by the DNR, Green frogs in Wisconsin are more sensitive to water temperature than trophic levels.
