Publication summary: 

We examined habitat use of the southern toad (Anaxyrus terrestris) as an indicator of relationships between amphibians and woody biomass in pine plantations of the southeastern United States using a controlled enclosure experiment and a field-based radio-telemetry study. Toads used woody debris for diurnal cover, particularly during hot and dry weather, but used other cover sources as well.
