Although we used small buckets 30 liters for pitfall traps, we collected a total of 35 snake specimens with this method. Results and Discussion Herpetoffauna 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. In addition, we used species richness estimators with nonparametric incidence-based estimators: 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.
Check List 10 1: Out of 21 amphibian species, we collected only five of them with pitfall traps as well as through active search Table 1.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: The Catimbau National Park, Pernambuco, Brazil
Statistical estimation of species richness and shared species from samples. September 17, ; Accepted: Parque Nacional do Catimbau.
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. User’s Guide and application published at: Interpolating, extrapolating and comparing incidence-based species accumulation curves.
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 All amphibians found in Catimbau National Park were anuran species distributed in seven families.
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. The species rarefaction and richness estimators were constructed in EstimateS 9.
User Username Password Remember me. In herpegofauna study, our principal goal, using the same methodology to describe and compare the herpetofauna of the protected areas in Caatinga biome has been reached see Garda et al. Check List 9 2: Thirty-seven pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, along with glue traps and active searches were used to sample local herpetofaunal diversity.
However, a rapid increase in the last decades of long-term inventories for several localities has shown a much higher amphibian and reptile species richness and endemism than previously believed Rodrigues Parque Nacional do Catimbau, Pernambuco, Brasil.
Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species in short-term inventories. All the other 16 species were collected exclusively by active search, indicating the importance of such method for this group.
Seven species we collected both during active searches and in the pitfall traps.
Caatinya, snake richness will increase considerably with more sampling effort and consequently the number of reptiles will rise. In addition, our work reinforces the importance of the Park in conserving and maintaining Caatinga biodiversity, and new efforts to a better preservation and management of the National Park are certainly recommended.
We recorded 15 species of lizards, 4 amphisbaenas, 23 snakes, 2 chelonians and 31 frogs. Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga IV: We also carried random active searches for specimens, which were conducted in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night, in the following locations and trails, locally knows as: Amphibians and reptiles from a highly diverse area of the Caatinga domain: Squamata, Gymnophtalmidae, Anotosaura vanzolinia Dixon, Those two species have their distributions almost confined to the Caatinga biome Coelho et al.
Additionally, we used glue traps distributed as quartets in each array of pitfall traps: Leiuperinae from Northeastern Brazil. Taken together, our results indicate that the Central Pernambuco region has the highest known herpetofana richness within the Caatinga and that Catimbau National Park is a key area for Caatinga biodiversity conservation Rodrigues
