... of frogs (Fahrig et al. 1995; Carr and Fahrig 2001), presumably due to high road mortality. This can lead to genetic structuring of populations when roads create a barrier effect for some species (Reh and Seitz 1990). Findlay and Bourdages (2000) suggested that there are time lags in impacts, possibly...
