Cheyenne Del Nin, BSc

As a child, I was lucky enough to have a pond in the garden where frogs and toads lived. I was immediately fascinated, and it was clear to me that I want to work with amphibians. This fascination led me to study ecology and biodiversity at the University of Innsbruck.

Now, as part of my master’s thesis, I have the opportunity to research the complex relationships within ecosystems and to contribute to the understanding and protection of amphibian populations in Tyrol. Together with my colleagues Sebastian Wildauer, Michael Meusburger, and Clara Zencominierski, I am mapping the Inn Valley for common frog and common toad populations. Our research employs a multi-stage approach, documenting the entire amphibian life cycle (egg to adult) alongside detailed analyses of vegetation and site parameters at both potential and existing breeding sites in the Inn Valley.
