LUCAS, Elaine Maria  y  MAROCCO, João Carlos. Anurans (Amphibia, Anura) in a remnant of mixed ombrophilous forest in Santa Catarina State, Southern Brazil. Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.1, pp.377-384. ISSN 1806-129X.

Faunal surveys are important tools to enhance biological conservation strategies in different regions. This study presents information on amphibian species richness and species composition in Parque Nacional das Araucárias; the largest conservation unit of mixed ombrophilous forest in Santa Catarina State, Southern Brazil. Active searches were conducted in October 2008 and March 2009 in sites potentially used for reproduction of species. We recorded a total of twenty nine species, being 28 native and one exotic species, and belonging to 16 genera and eight families. The high richness recorded, as well as the occurrence of species associated with nearly pristine habitats, suggest that Parque Nacional das Araucárias is an important area for amphibian conservation in Santa Catarina State.
