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.
Of those, eigth species were recorded in the Catimbau National Park for yerpetofauna first time. The lizard richness is higher than other Caatinga areas, which typically range from 14 to 21 species VittCavalcanti et al.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: The Catimbau National Park, Pernambuco, Brazil
User Username Password Remember me. 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. The authors are grateful to all researchers that helped sometime during the fieldwork. Thirty-five pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, coupled with glue traps, and haphazard searches were used to sample the herpetofaunal diversity.
Historically, the Caatinga herpetofauna was considered herpetoofauna and lacking character compared to forest biomes in South America Vanzolini et al. 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.
We recorded 21 species of frogs, 25 lizards, 11 snakes, and 1 chelonian. 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 In addition, we used species richness estimators with nonparametric incidence-based estimators: 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: Herein, we provide the first record of several species for Chapada Diamantina, which among them are worth mentioning Chiasmocleis sp.
User’s Guide and application published at: Currently, there are more than squamate and amphibian species known for the Caatinga, many of which are endemic RodriguesDelfimand new endemic species are continuously being described Cruz et al.
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.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga I: The Caatinga biome is exclusive to Brazil, covering approximately All traps were checked daily. Amphibians and reptiles from a highly diverse area of the Caatinga domain: With the addition of those few species, the number of species of amphibians and lizards approaches the richness projected by the estimators. D landscape is a typical Caatinga, with physiognomies such as dense arboreal Caatinga, caatinya spineless vegetation, sandy soils and rock fields, both evergreen and deciduous flora with plant species such as Caesalpinia ferrea, Ziziphus joazeiro, Orbignya phalerataBursera leptophloeos, as well as cacti and bromeliads Figueiredo et al.
A new genus and species of eyelid-less and limb reduced gymnophthalmid lizard from northeastern Brazil Squamata, Gymnophthalmidae. Turtles of the world.
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 Parque Nacional do Catimbau. Overview of the distribution of snakes of the genus Thamnodynastes Dipsadidae in northeastern Brazil, with new records and remarks on their morphometry and pholidosis. Estimating terrestrial biodiversity through extrapolation.
Furthermore, the abundance of some species, such as the gymnophthalmids Scriptosaura catimbau and Vanzosaura rubricaudaor the tropidurid Tropidurus cocorobensiswas remarkably high. Out of 21 amphibian species, we collected only five of them with pitfall traps as well as through active search Table 1. The species rarefaction curves were attained without replacement, using jerpetofauna, randomizations.
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. Propostas para o Bioma Caatinga.
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 We also found a high diversity of lizards in Catimbau National Park.
Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species daa short-term inventories.
All amphibians found in Catimbau National Park were anuran species distributed in seven families. All sampling methods contributed significantly to achieve the amphibian and reptile diversity recovered in the inventory. September 17, ; Accepted:
