- Over the past five years, comprehensive annual surveys by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) personnel have identified sites with a high prevalence of abnormal native amphibians. A number of these sites are located within National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) in the Northeast. In conjunction with the field surveys, prolonged (140-d) FETAX assays were performed with sediment and surface water samples from three potentially affected NWR sites: 1) Ferry Way Beaver Pond, Great Bay NWR, Newington, New Hampshire, 2) Brown Street Impoundment, Rachel Carson NWR, Wells, Maine and 3) Black Creek (Trails Site), Missisquoi NWR, Swanton, Vermont. Endpoints used to assess the effects of site sediment and surface water exposure on Xenopus development included survival, ability to complete metamorphosis, time to complete and size at metamorphosis, and frequency of malformations.
