Propostas para o Bioma Caatinga. All traps were checked daily. Herpetofauna of protected areas caatunga the Caatinga III: Overview of the distribution of snakes of the genus Thamnodynastes Dipsadidae in northeastern Brazil, with new records and remarks on their morphometry and pholidosis.

Despite these findings, our rarefaction curves suggest that local biodiversity is still underestimated, which reinforces the need for future inventories in dq and in less studied sites along this region.

Rarefaction curves and richness estimators suggest that local biodiversity is still underestimated.

Check List 10 herpdtofauna The function of richness Mao Tau was calculated as the accumulation function of species throughout the number of collected individuals. Finally, two species Amphisbaena alba and Philodryas olfersii were found killed on roads within and adjacent to the Catimbau National Park.

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

User’s Guide and application published at: March 20, ; Revised: Despite this increase in herpetofaunal inventories, information for many areas of the biome is still lacking and new surveys are required.

The species rarefaction curves were attained without replacement, using 1, randomizations.


Acknowledgements The authors are grateful to all researchers that helped sometime during the fieldwork. Isabella Mayara Monteiro de Carvalho Pedrosa, e-mail: 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 IV: Microhylidae and Acanthochelys sp.

All amphibians found in Catimbau National Park were anuran species distributed in seven families. The authors are grateful to all researchers that helped sometime during the fieldwork. The glue traps were efficient for lizard survey, capturing 64 individuals from 13 species. Parque Nacional do Catimbau. The landscape is a typical Caatinga, with physiognomies such as dense arboreal Caatinga, shrubby 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.

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

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. Dx also carried random active searches for caatinag, which were conducted in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night, in the following locations and trails, locally knows as: Seven species we collected both during active searches and in the pitfall traps.

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 For lizards, four species were only collected through active search Table 1 and three species were only caught with pitfall traps, including two amphisbaenians and the tiny gecko Coleodactylus meridionalis.


Introduction The Caatinga biome is exclusive to Brazil, covering approximately Changing the course of herletofauna conservation in the Caatinga of Northeastern Brazil. Additionally, we attempted to show the great potential of Catimbau National Park in harboring caaringa important herpetofaunal Caatinga diversity, characterized by the richest herpetofauna surveyed in a core region of the biome.

Herpetology Notes

Leiuperinae from Northeastern Brazil. Herein, we provide the first record of several species for Chapada Diamantina, which among them are worth mentioning Chiasmocleis sp. Services on Demand Journal. Usually, snakes contribute with a caaringa number of species in short-term inventories. Thirty-seven pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, along herpetofsuna glue traps and active searches were used to sample local herpetofaunal diversity. The Park has an area of approximately 62, ha, and ranges from m to 1, m of altitude.

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.
