Abstract
The control of invasive alien species is essential for securing native biodiversity. As for the American bullfrog, Lithobates catesbeianus, suspected to cause ecological damage to native amphibians around the globe, comprehensive management techniques are currently absent. We investigated two contrasting approaches to control the species in permanent, small and shallow water bodies in Flanders (northern Belgium). Small and isolated populations were actively managed through trapping with double fyke nets. The catchability of tadpoles averaged 6 % of the population with the specified sampling gear, implying feasible perspectives for a full eradication of the speci...
