Herpetology Notes

Introduction The Caatinga biome is exclusive to Brazil, covering approximately However, snake richness will increase considerably with more sampling effort and consequently the number of reptiles will rise. The rarefaction curves Mao Tau did not reach stability Figure 9 and the various species richness estimators produced greater estimates than ad observed richness for amphibians and reptiles, or also for individual estimates for lizards and snakes Table 2.

Microhylidae and Acanthochelys sp. Also, the region is considered to be of extreme biological importance due its richness and endemism MMA hegpetofauna All the other 16 species were collected exclusively by active search, indicating the importance of such method for this group.

Propostas para o Bioma Caatinga. We also found a high diversity of lizards in Catimbau National Park. Thirty-five pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, coupled with glue traps, and haphazard searches were used to sample the herpetofaunal diversity. Nevertheless, more species are likely herpetoauna be incorporated to the local lizard richness.

Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: We suggest that long-term studies in the area should be conducted, attempting to describe the entire herpetofauna of the region. The authors are grateful to all researchers that helped sometime during the fieldwork. Historically, the Caatinga herpetofauna was considered impoverished and lacking character compared to forest biomes in South America Vanzolini et al.


User’s Guide and application published at: Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species in short-term inventories. Usually, snakes and turtles are not prone to be collected with specific traps. In addition, we used species richness estimators with nonparametric incidence-based estimators: We recorded 1, individuals pertaining to 37 species of reptiles 25 lizards, three amphisbaenians, 11 snakes, and one chelonian and 21 species of amphibians Table 1Figures 3 – 8.

Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: The Catimbau National Park, Pernambuco, Brazil

The Park has an area of approximately 62, ha, and ranges from m to 1, m of altitude. Thirty-seven pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, along with glue traps and active searches were used to sample local herpetofaunal diversity. Turtles of the world. Changing the course of biodiversity conservation in the Caatinga of Northeastern Brazil.

The composition of amphibian families is similar to other surveys in the Caatinga core region Garda et alArzabe et alwith species distributed in families fa a dominance of Hylidae and Leptodactylidae, followed by other families with species, such as Bufonidae and Odontophrynidae.

Check List 10 1: We used 37 pitfall trap arrays divided into two different trails, one in an open shrubby vegetation area with sandy soil and the other in a dense forest vegetation area. Abstract We provide a list of amphibians, lizards, chelonians, and snakes collected during a day expedition to the northern portion of Chapada Diamantina National Park, Palmeiras municipality, Bahia State, Brazil.

The species rarefaction curves were attained without replacement, using 1, randomizations. Amphibians; reptiles; inventory; northeast Brazil. Squamata, Gymnophtalmidae, Anotosaura vanzolinia Dixon, Although we used small buckets 30 liters for pitfall traps, we collected a total of 35 snake specimens with this method.

While we did not extensively searched roads, this may be a great concern due to the impact on the wild fauna, primarily around protected areas. We recorded 15 species of lizards, 4 amphisbaenas, 23 snakes, 2 chelonians and 31 frogs. Results and Discussion We recorded 1, individuals pertaining to 37 species of reptiles 25 herpetofauan, three amphisbaenians, 11 snakes, and one chelonian and 21 species of amphibians Table 1 caatjnga, Figures 3 – 8.

Also, four snake species were only found and collected through active search Table 1. Furthermore, the abundance of some species, such as the gymnophthalmids Scriptosaura catimbau and Vanzosaura rubricaudaor the tropidurid Tropidurus cocorobensiswas remarkably high.

Additionally, we attempted to show the great potential of Catimbau National Park in harboring an important herpetofaunal Caatinga diversity, characterized by the richest herpetofauna surveyed in a core region of the herpetofzuna.

Statistical estimation of species richness and shared species from samples. New records and geographic distribution map. Interpolating, extrapolating and comparing incidence-based species accumulation curves.

Of those, eigth species were recorded in the Catimbau National Park for the first time.
