The PRIMENet (Parks Research and Intensive Monitoring of Ecosystems Network) is a system of 14 national parks, established as index sites for long-term monitoring of environmental quality and use as outdoor laboratories. From February 1-3, 1999, biologists from various Federal agencies and academia gathered in Duluth, MN to discuss research to be conducted at PRIMENet sites under a new interagency agreement (IAG) between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. National Park Service. Pursuant to the recommendations of the IAG, participants were asked to formulate a research program that would address issues of amphibian malformations and declines and the potential role of ultraviolet radiation. Prior to this meeting biologists from EPA's Mid-Continent Ecology Division compiled data on amphibian populations and park characteristics, and determined that Acadia, Smoky Mountains, Rocky Mountains, Glacier, Sequoia-Kings Canyon, and Olympic National Parks were the feasible sites for this research. Plenary session presentations and follow-up discussions elaborated the key issues to be addressed under this IAG, and representatives from each of the 6 candidate sites further described the relevant characteristics of their parks. Hypotheses to be addressed by this research fell under two broad headings: (1) the importance of metapopulation dynamics for amphibian surveys and monitoring; and (2) the potential effects of ultraviolet radiation on amphibians.
