We also found a high diversity of lizards in Catimbau National Park.
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. 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 herpetorauna Rodrigues Despite this increase in herpetofaunal inventories, information for many areas of the biome is still lacking and new surveys are required.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga II: In order TO cover the widest range of microhabitat and activity periods possible, we further searched sites with different phytophysiognomies, like dense vegetation areas, open vegetation areas with sandy soils, hefpetofauna crops, and areas with water caatingw.
Historically, the Caatinga herpetofauna was considered impoverished and lacking character compared to forest biomes in South America Vanzolini et al.
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.
Amphibians and reptiles from a highly diverse area of the Caatinga domain: Turtles of the world.
Furthermore, the abundance of some species, such as the gymnophthalmids Scriptosaura catimbau and Vanzosaura rubricaudaor the tropidurid Tropidurus cocorobensiswas remarkably high. Although we used small buckets 30 liters for pitfall traps, we collected a total of 35 snake specimens with this method. Check List 10 1: Herein, we provide the first record of several species for Chapada Diamantina, which among them are worth mentioning Chiasmocleis sp.
The Park has an area of approximately 62, ha, and ranges from m to 1, m of altitude. 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. 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.
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga III: The Catimbau National Park, Pernambuco, Brazil
Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga I: How to cite this article. The inventory was conducted from March 13th to April 14th, We used a standardized methodology that allows results to be compared across previous and future inventories Garda et al. This is supported by our results, which show species accumulation curves quite asymptotic for amphibians and lizards but not for reptiles and snakes, and that species richness estimates were higher than the observed number of species, specially for reptiles and snakes.
All sampling methods contributed significantly to achieve the amphibian herpetofaunw reptile diversity recovered in the caatinya. We suggest that long-term studies in the area should be conducted, attempting to describe the entire herpetofauna of the region.
It is more likely to find snakes and turtles during active searches or sporadically. Thirty-seven pitfall trap arrays composed of 4 buckets each, along with glue traps and active searches were used to sample local herpetofaunal diversity.
The species rarefaction and richness estimators were constructed in EstimateS 9. Abstract We provide a list of amphibians, lizards, chelonians, and snakes collected during a day expedition to the northern herpetorauna of Chapada Diamantina National Park, Palmeiras municipality, Bahia State, Brazil. Acknowledgements The authors are grateful to all researchers that helped sometime during the fieldwork.
Out of 21 amphibian species, we collected only five of them with pitfall traps as well as through active search Table 1. We recorded 15 species of lizards, 4 amphisbaenas, 23 snakes, 2 chelonians and 31 frogs. Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species in short-term inventories. New records and geographic distribution map.
Parque Nacional do Catimbau, Pernambuco, Brasil. 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 herpetofauha the lack of effective collecting methods Shine The glue traps herpetfauna efficient for lizard survey, capturing 64 individuals from 13 species.
User Username Password Remember me. 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. However, snake richness will increase considerably with more sampling effort and consequently the number of reptiles will rise.
