Abstract: Abstract:The northern part of the state of Rio Grande do Sul was extensively deforested in recent decades, and only isolated fragments of the original vegetation remain. The Parque Natural Municipal de Sertão comprises a remnant of Atlantic Rain Forest, one of the largest fragments in northern Rio Grande do Sul. This study examined the diversity of the herpetofauna, focusing on environmental distribution, seasonality and species richness. We used complementary methods of sampling such as pitfall traps, active … Show more

“…Garcia et al (2007) observed a few males calling in secluded locations, from twilight until several hours after nightfall, in vegetation or partially immersed in water. Lipinski et al (2012) and Zanella et al (2013) recorded this species along a stream, calling from the vegetation, confirming its preference for this type of habitat.…”

“…: MORATO et al, 2011). No entanto, apresenta-se similar a inventários rápidos realizados no estado do Rio Grande do Sul (ZANELLA et al, 2013). Todavia, para a região sul de Santa Catarina, devido à inexistência de dados, comparações entre diferentes áreas não são possíveis.…”

“…Embora o esforço de amostragem tenha sido o mesmo para anfíbios e répteis não podemos deixar de levar em consideração que existem espécies que, por suas características biológicas, raramente são registradas, mesmo utilizando métodos complementares (ZANELLA et al, 2013) Para os anfíbios, os métodos de busca ativa, encontros auditivos e busca em sítios reprodutivos foram os mais efetivos para o incremento de riqueza. Da mesma forma, houve maior sucesso no registro dos répteis por meio do método de busca ativa.…”

“…Anurans represent a broadly diverse group and perform a variety of functions in ecosystems, playing an important role in energy flow and nutrient cycling in both terrestrial and aquatic environments, as well as assisting in pest control (Valencia-Aguilar et al 2013), and are natural indicators of impacts on the environment, mainly due to their physiological characteristics (such as permeable skin) which makes them sensitive to environmental changes (Zanella et al 2013).…”
