Tonight might be a night for watching salamanders (and frogs) migrate near campus in East Brunswick. The Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission keep a salamander blog that says today's rains and warm weather could spark a move, and they've already found at least one spotted salamander. They'll close Beekman Road and let pedestrians come peek with flashlights. If there is lightning, you should skip it.

What have we learned about habitat that might keep them from needing to close a road? What's the basic problem here?
