Mortality of Vertebrates and Invertebrates on an Athens County, Ohio, Highway




Although previous road-kill surveys have tallied the number and kinds of vertebrates that were victims of vehicular traffic (mostly birds and mammals), none has recorded invertebrate mortality. A 14-month survey on foot of each side of a 1.6 km (1 mi) stretch of dual lane highway provided 188 vertebrate and 1,162 invertebrate victims. Finding rare and unusual species of invertebrates suggests that this technique be used as a supplementary faunal survey.
