Amphibians and reptiles are recognized as key biological indicators of environmental health and critical members of healthy functioning ecosystems. As many species hold mid-level positions in food webs, they are important consumers of various invertebrate and vertebrate species that are considered harmful or destructive to native ecosystems and gardens. Often native species of amphibian and reptiles are not considered as part of the biological control approach as many are not aware of their benefits. This presentation will discuss various native species of amphibian and reptile found in the Great Lakes region and the species they help us control. We will also discuss how to enhance habitat and attract herpetofauna to natural area and gardens to help control and remove invasives.
