advancing research and conservation of Texas Eurycea salamanders

Welcome to the EuryceAlliance!

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the new website for the EuryceAlliance! The EuryceAlliance is a scientific working group dedicated to advancing scientific research on and conservation of the threatened and endangered Eurycea salamanders of the Edwards Plateau of central Texas. Our first meeting was held at Texas State University on June 10, 2011 and attracted over 40 participants from many of the agencies and institutions you see linked on the right-hand side of this page. 11 researchers presented their recent work. We had the opportunity to discuss research and conservation challenges and decided on a bi-annual meeting structure.

Feel free to take a look around the new site. I welcome your feedback as it continues to be developed and encourage people to submit their ideas for what more the site could offer. On this main page you’ll find special EuryceAlliance announcements (including meeting information and other events) and current news about the Texas Eurycea. On the Meetings page you can view the meeting programs and abstracts, and I am working to upload videos of the scientific presentations from our meetings. On the Resources page you’ll soon be able to view a bibliography of Texas Eurycea related reports, books and scientific papers compiled by Nathan Bendik and myself. Nate and I need your help finding any publications we may not know of yet (we’re always finding new things!) and we request that you send us digital or print copies if you have them. You can also join the EuryceAlliance listserv by clicking the link on the right-hand side of this page. The listserv will help us keep in touch between meetings, share research and permitting tips and discuss important Eurycea conservation and research related issues.

Please be patient as the site is under construction. If you’d like more information in the meantime, have ideas for the EuryceAlliance or want to get involved with the next meeting, please let me know by email!

Most Sincerely,

Hayley Gillespie (
