Abstract: Biodiversity corridors comprise a mosaic of land uses connecting fragments of natural forest across a landscape. Two such corridors have been established along the eastern coast of Brazil: the Serra do Mar and the Central da Mata Atlântica corridors, along which most of the coastal plains are restinga areas. In this study, we analyze the present status of the endemic and endangered terrestrial vertebrates of both corridors. We sampled 10 restingas in both corridors, recording species of amphibians, reptiles, b… Show more

“…However, only three species, all of them sand-dwellings (Etheridge, 2000), are presently known to occur in Brazil: L. arambarensis Verrastro, Veronese, Bujes and Dias-Filho, 2003 and L. occipitalis Boulenger, 1885, both from coastal sandy habitats from southern Brazil, and Liolaemus lutzae Mertens, 1938, endemic to the restinga habitats of Rio de Janeiro State, southeastern Brazil (Rocha et al, 2005). Liolaemus lutzae is a small sand-dwelling lizard (51-80 mm snout-vent length when adult; Rocha, 1992).…”

“…Pellegrino et al (2005) proposed that the origin of rio Doce, together with the formation of current rio São Francisco, were responsible for isolating this region. The area from southern coastal Bahia to the northern portion of Espírito Santo is inhabited by many endemic taxa, and is considered a "hotspot" of biodiversity (Bizerril, 1994;Chomitz et al, 2005;Galindo-Leal & Câmara, 2005;Rocha et al, 2005). Examples of endemic fishes from that region can be found in the studies of Menezes (1988), Weitzman et al (1988) Zanata & Camelier (2009), among others.…”

“…), and was recorded by us during the present study. Among other bird species found in the local restingas, the Black-backed Tanager Tangara peruviana (Dermarest) is considered globally vulnerable (IUCN, 2004) and occupies the region in the winter, and the Tropical Mockingbird Mimus gilvus (Vieillot), whose subspecies Mimus gilvus antelius is exclusive to restingas in the state of Rio de Janeiro (Rocha et al, 2005), is regionally endangered (Alves et al, 2000).…”
