Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of encouraging aquatic plant growth as refuge against fish predation on amphibian populations.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Vegetation can be planted or managed to provide refuge for amphibians against predatory fish. However, vegetation can also provide habitat for predators.
