Loss of catchment-wide riparian forest cover is associated with reduced recruitment in a long-lived amphibian
Review articleOpen access

Highlights•Hellbender salamander demography was associated with catchment-wide riparian forest cover.•Demography was not associated with local riparian forest or catchment-scale forest.•Abundance and recruitment declined and demographic structure became skewed as forest declined.•Water quality may have been a proximate mechanism linking land use to demography.•Conserving stream species likely depends on protecting broad extents of riparian habitat.
