Micthell Jones

Mitchell joined the vernal pool team in September 2014 as a PhD student in the Department of wildlife, fisheries and conservation biology. His research focuses on movement of pool breeding amphibians through the landscape. As Maine continues to develop he is interested in seeing how the configuration of developed land influences the ability for amphibians to move between pools and their overwintering grounds. Ultimately Mitchell hopes his work will help inform policy makers in their decisions surrounding protection and development around pools. Please feel free to contact him with any questions or comments.

About Us

Understanding the vital connections between landowner concerns, municipal planning, conservation activities, and the ecology of vernal pools will be the focus of natural and social scientists from the University of Maine, Clark University, and Bowdoin College as they embark on a multi-year research project concerning Maine’s small natural features—vernal pools.
