I thought it was really interesting. I too am studying newts in Scotland, I'm gathering data of Alpine Newts in and around edinburgh. I will make sure to post all my findings here (part one of my report will probably be ready in June)

It almost sounds like an April fools story! I wonder if they mean actual seawater, or brackish? I thought there was only Cane toads that could tolerate any degree of salinity in the water.

I think it's probably brackish, with a tendency towards freshwater. However, it is still quite fascinating.

Take it with a few dozen grains of salt...finding a news article that accurately reports scientific findings is like finding chocolate unicorns that piss beer, rarer than everybody would hope.
It is interesting , though, and i would love to read the original paper.
