About KHS Herp Counts:
Since 1989 the Kansas Herpetology Society has sponsored, facilitated, and published the results of Kansas Herpetofaunal Count. The initial herp counts were held in Morris, Sumner, Kiowa, and Allen counties (Collins, J. T. 1989. First Kansas Herp Counts Held in 1989. KHS Newsletter No. 77).
The KHS Herp Counts were initially designed, compiled, and authored by Joseph T. Collins. In 1993 KHS Editor Eric Rundquist joined as a compiler and co-author, and ultimately assumed the sole authorship in 1994. Since 2002 the counts have been compiled by the KHS editor and authored individually.
Several Herp Counts have been conducted continuously for 20+ years, yielding a wealth of data. Herp Counts were initially confined to April and May, but can now be conducted at any time of the year.
If you would like to have your herp count event advertised above, please send all pertinent information (date/time and location of the count, etc.) to the KHS Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
