Résumé

We evaluate the effect of different capture techniques on estimates of species richness and diversity for several amphibian, reptile, and small mammal communities in saturated forested wetlands in southeastern Virginia and South Carolina. Each technique yields different and biased quantitative results because of variation in catchability within and among taxonomic groups. Drift fences with pitfall traps seem to be a useful technique for most taxa, but complete inventories require supplemental methods. Standardized arrays of coverboards in saturated forested wetlands may be useful only for specific taxa. Our ability to generalize about the structure of terrestrial vertebrate communities and their value in saturated forested wetlands is limited because current data sets were obtained with different capture techniques. We recommend that standardized techniques and sampling efforts be used in future assessments of vertebrate communities in saturated forested wetlands so that comparisons can be made across time and space.
