Abstract: The Atlantic Forest is the home to a diverse and threatened fauna of amphibians. However, knowledge on these species is still scarce to many of its ecosystems, such as the Seasonal Forest. This study was aimed at determining the diversity of anurans in Parque Estadual Fritz Plaumann (PEFP), located in the municipality of Concórdia, Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. The PEFP comprises 741 ha, and is the only Conservation Unit of Seasonal Forest in Santa Catarina state. From August 2010 to July 2011 we surveyed f… Show more

“…This trait is typical of amphibian assemblages in southern Brazil (Both et al, 2008). Although no significant correlations were observed among temperature, rainfall, and reproductive activity, we did detect a decrease in activity during the colder months; this pattern is supported by many studies showing positive influence of climatic variables on the reproductive activity of anurans (Guix, 1996;Pombal, 1997;Camargo et al, 2005;Conte and Rossa-Feres, 2007;Santos et al, 2007;Both et al, 2008;Vasconcelos et al, 2011;Bastiani and Lucas, 2013). The study area is located on the shoreline of a lake that houses a hydroelectric plant, which in conjunction with air humidity, may have influenced the positive correlation of temperature with individual activity.…”

“…Small population sizes are apparently more common in stream-dwelling amphibians in the Atlantic Forest (Almeida-Gomes et al, 2014) than in species in lentic habitat. The population in this study is one of the few currently known in Brazil (see Iop et al, 2009;Lucas and Marocco, 2011;Lucas and Garcia, 2011;Lipinski et al, 2012;Bastiani and Lucas, 2013). Fragmentation and isolation of the interior Atlantic Forest, expansion of hydroelectric projects in the region, and land and soil conversion for agricultural (Câmara, 2003;Bonai et al, 2009;Ternus et al, 2011) and silvicultural projects (Machado et al, 2012) may promote isolation of H. curupi populations.…”

“…Todavia, para a região sul de Santa Catarina, devido à inexistência de dados, comparações entre diferentes áreas não são possíveis. Alguns estudos no Brasil têm mostrado que áreas abertas apresentam maior riqueza em relação aos ambientes florestais (este estudo) (AFONSO; ETEROVICK, 2007; LUCAS; MAROCCO, 2011;BASTIANI;LUCAS, 2013). Este padrão pode estar relacionado à evolução dos anuros neotropicais, que favoreceu espécies que se reproduzem em ambientes lênticos de áreas abertas, resultado este exercido por diferentes pressões (e.g., predadores, recursos, competição e distúrbios) (ZIMMERMAN; SIMBERLOFF, 1996;HOCKING;SEMLITSCH, 2008;SANTOS et al 2012).…”

“…Nesta região, Paraná e Rio Grande do Sul acumulam grande conhecimento em relação à composição faunística, pois, diversos estudos têm sido desenvolvidos nestes estados a várias décadas (BÉRNILS et al, 2007). Outro fator que pode contribuir com este melhor conhecimento é o fato de que em ambos os estados, existem universidades federais com forte atuação dos seus docentes nas linhas de zoologia -herpetologia.…”

“…In Santa Catarina, little is known about species richness and geographical distribution of frogs due to the paucity of studies related to the subject (Garcia et al 2008;Lucas 2008). Most previous research has been concentrated in the western part of the state (Bastiani et al 2012;Bastiani & Lucas 2013;Lingnau 2009;Lucas & Fortes 2008;Lucas & Garcia 2011;Lucas & Marocco 2011) and near the central coast (Garcia 1996;Garcia & Vinciprova 1998;Garcia et al 2003;Kwet 2006). A new species was recently described, as well, from the state (Bruschi et al 2014).…”
