Kraus & Petranka, 1989
Adults of A. barbouri can be found underground and under rocks or leaves in deciduous forests at moderate elevations. Eggs are generally laid in small streams, less readily in ponds. Larva tend to hide among green algae to protect themselves from predators.
Total streamside salamander population is estimated at above 10,000 individuals, but precise data are lacking. The species is under pressure from habitat destruction (conversion of forests to pasture and residential areas).
