Keywords:Plains Spadefoot, Spea bombifrons, distribution, soil texture, Manitoba
AbstractThe distribution of the Plains Spadefoot, Spea bombifrons, in southwestern Manitoba appears to be determined by soil type. Preference is shown for coarse textured to moderately textured soils, followed by medium textured soils. Drainage appeared to be less important in regard to distribution.
