The salamander population in the headwaters of Appalachia is both large and rich in a variety of species. At least in the undisturbed headwaters, that is. UK Department of Forestry scientist Steven Price has determined through a study of 23 Eastern Kentucky headwater streams that mountaintop removal mining and subsequent valley fill takes a toll on the amphibians’ numbers.

The culminating event of The Arboretum’s month-long celebration, Party for the Planet, will kick off at 10 a.m. in the Pennyrile region of the Walk Across Kentucky.

Steven J. Price received the Association of Southeastern Biologists'  Senior Research Award for his outstanding research.
