Rep: plethdemography is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Request for Plethodon clutch data

Hi fellow salamander enthusiasts!

I'm a PhD student studying Plethodon in western North Carolina and I'm looking for some data from folks who breed Plethodon, any species, specifically, what clutch sizes do your animals produce and how many of those eggs actually hatch? Ideally, I'd find this out for animals in the field but that's next to impossible so I am turning to you, the people who actually successfully breed these animals in hopes of at least getting a baseline in captivity.

If you can help me with this, please tell me:
- the species of the female and the male
- the snout-vent length of your female in millimeters
- the approximate location where she was collected
- the number of eggs in each of her clutches
- the number of eggs that hatched in each clutch (if any)
- the number of eggs that she ate in each clutch (if any)

Thanks so much for your help!
