Rate this:
Secretive, nocturnal, and little known, salamanders are actually often the most abundant vertebrates on the forest floor. Common to freshwater and moist terrestrial habitats throughout most of the world, they are of increasing importance as biological indicators because of their sensitivity to environmental disturbance. North America is especially rich in salamanders; indeed, the southeastern United States, including the Appalachians, has the greatest diversity of salamander species in the world.
