Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: Services on Demand Journal. We collected the two specimens of herpetofauns mud-turtle Kinosternon scorpioides during the active searches.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga II: Estimating terrestrial biodiversity through extrapolation. We recorded caatingq species of frogs, 25 lizards, 11 snakes, and 1 chelonian. Taken together, our results indicate that the Central Pernambuco region has the highest known herpetofaunal richness within the Caatinga and that Catimbau National Park is a key area for Caatinga biodiversity conservation Rodrigues 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.
In this study, our principal goal, using the same methodology to describe and compare the herpetofauna of the protected areas in Caatinga biome herpetofana been reached see Garda et al. The Park is included in the sedimentary deposits of Tacaratu formation, from the Paleozoic era, with the topography mainly uneven, due to strong intemperism Ferreira Furthermore, the abundance of some species, such as the gymnophthalmids Scriptosaura catimbau and Vanzosaura rubricaudaor the tropidurid Tropidurus cocorobensiswas remarkably high.
Thirty-five pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, coupled with glue traps, and haphazard searches were used to sample the herpetofaunal diversity. All amphibians found in Catimbau National Park were anuran species distributed in seven families. Check List 9 2: 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. Finally, the number of endemic and undescribed species recorded in this study provides additional evidence of the importance of Chapada Diamantina for the maintenance and conservation of the herpetofauna within the Caatinga domain.
Herein, we present the results of a day inventory of the herpetofauna from the Catimbau National Park, in the semi-arid region of Pernambuco State. Leiuperinae from Northeastern Brazil. Despite these findings, our rarefaction curves suggest that local biodiversity is still underestimated, which reinforces the need for future inventories in this and in less studied sites along this region.
Squamata, Gymnophtalmidae, Anotosaura vanzolinia Dixon, Our aims were to 1 provide a list based on an intensive effort conducted over a whole month; 2 contribute to the knowledge of the Caatinga herpetofauna, and 3 contextualize the results comparing, when possible, the richness and abundance of squamates and amphibians with other Caatinga sites.
March 20, ; Revised: Although we used small buckets 30 liters for pitfall traps, we collected a total of 35 snake specimens with this method. Thirty-seven pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, along with glue traps and active searches were used to sample local herpetofaunal diversity. Probably, new species will be added to the list, mostly those pertaining to biological groups difficult to access rapidly, such as snakes.
Finally, two species Amphisbaena alba and Philodryas olfersii were found killed on roads within and adjacent to the Catimbau National Park.
The glue traps were efficient for lizard survey, capturing 64 individuals from 13 species. Parque Nacional do Catimbau. 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 biome. Turtles of the world. Herein, we provide the first record of several species for Chapada Diamantina, which among them are worth mentioning Chiasmocleis sp.
We also carried random active searches for specimens, which were conducted herperofauna the morning, in the afternoon, and at night, in the following locations and trails, locally knows as: Usually, in rapid inventories, snakes are harder to sample than lizards and frogs because they present secretive habits, low abundance, do not produce sound, and due to the lack of effective collecting methods Shine Those two species have their distributions almost confined to the Caatinga biome Coelho et al.
Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species in short-term inventories.
A new species of Pseudopaludicola Anura: New records and geographic distribution map. The species rarefaction and richness estimators were constructed in EstimateS 9.
We recorded 15 species of lizards, 4 amphisbaenas, 23 snakes, 2 chelonians and 31 frogs. Seven species we collected both during active searches and in the caaatinga traps.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: The Catimbau National Park, Pernambuco, Brazil
We attempted to show the great potential of Catimbau National Park, characterized by the richest herpetofauna surveyed in a core region of the biome, along with the presence of endemic species such as the worm snake Amphisbaena supranumeraria and the limbless lizard Scriptosaura catimbauunderscoring the importance of the area for the conservation and maintenance of the Caatinga herpetofauna biodiversity.
Parque Nacional do Catimbau, Pernambuco, Brasil. Microhylidae and Acanthochelys sp.
