Also, four snake species were only found and collected through active search Table 1. September 17, ; Accepted: The species rarefaction curves were attained without replacement, using 1, randomizations.

However, snake richness will increase considerably with more sampling effort and consequently the number of reptiles will rise. User’s Guide and application published at: Results and Discussion We recorded 1, individuals pertaining to 37 species of reptiles 25 lizards, three amphisbaenians, 11 herpegofauna, and one chelonian and 21 species of amphibians Table 1Figures 3 – 8.

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

With the addition of those few species, the number of species of amphibians and lizards approaches the richness projected by the estimators. All traps were checked daily. Herpetofauna of protected areas in the Caatinga I: 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.


Estimating terrestrial biodiversity through extrapolation.

All sampling methods contributed significantly to achieve the amphibian and reptile diversity recovered in the herpetovauna. Although we used small buckets 30 liters for pitfall traps, we collected a total of 35 snake specimens with this method. Herein, we present the results of a day inventory of the herpetofauna from the Catimbau National Park, in the caatinag region of Pernambuco State.

Herpetofauma 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. 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.

Herpetology Notes

Turtles of the world. Amphibians and reptiles from a highly diverse area of the Caatinga domain: New records and geographic distribution map. 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 Parque Nacional do Catimbau, Pernambuco, Brasil.

Parque Nacional do Catimbau. Currently, herpeotfauna 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.


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 herpetoafuna were higher than the observed number of species, specially for reptiles and snakes.

We used a standardized methodology that allows results to be compared across previous and future inventories Garda et al.

It is more likely to find snakes and turtles during active searches or sporadically. 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.

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: Propostas para o Bioma Caatinga.
