Global Conservation Significance of Ecuador's Yasuní National Park
Yasuní has outstanding global conservation significance due to its extraordinary biodiversity and potential to sustain this biodiversity in the long term because of its large size and wilderness character, and likelihood of maintaining wet, rainforest conditions while anticipated climate change-induced drought intensifies in the eastern Amazon.
The conservation status of the world's reptiles
Revision of the characters of Centrolenidae (Amphibia: Anura: Athesphatanura), with comments on its taxonomy and the description of new taxa of glassfrogs
This work defines and analyzes the 23 characters that are useful, in combination, in diagnosing centrolenid species, and provides a reference for the use of future workers.
Observations on the Reproductive Behavior of a Neotropical Glassfrog, Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni (Anura: Centrolenidae)
In regions where H. fleischmanni and T. cirrhosus co-occur, both calling males and egg masses were more frequently found on ‘less exposed’ lower surfaces of leaves, where risk of attack from aerial predators may be reduced.

The first comprehensive collection of detailed, voucher-based, point-locality, range maps for all described and documented Brazilian snakes is presented, with the major aim of mitigating the Wallacean shortfall and as a contribution towards a better understanding of this rich, threatened, and poorly studied megadiverse fauna.

The biodiversity metrics of Neotropical snakes reflect patterns previously documented for other vertebrates, suggesting that similar factors may determine the diversity of both ectothermic and endothermic animals.
A new glassfrog (Centrolenidae) from the Chocó-Andean Río Manduriacu Reserve, Ecuador, endangered by mining
A new glassfrog from Río Manduriacu Reserve, Imbabura Province, on the Pacific slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes is described and a new mitochondrial phylogeny of Nymphargus is presented, discussing the speciation patterns of this genus.
A NEW SPECIES OF FROG OF THE ELEUTHERODACTYLUS LACRIMOSUS ASSEMBLAGE (LEPTODACTYLIDAE) FROM THE WESTERN AMAZON BASIN, WITH COMMENTS ON THE UTILITY OF CANOPY SURVEYS IN LOWLAND RAINFOREST
It is found that even limited sampling effort in the canopy can greatly improve efficiency of biological inventories and the effect of lack of sampling in the forest canopy in the understanding of tropical amphibian communities.
Systematics of South American snail-eating snakes (Serpentes, Dipsadini), with the description of five new species from Ecuador and Peru
Abstract A molecular phylogeny of the Neotropical snail-eating snakes (tribe Dipsadini) is presented including 43 (24 for the first time) of the 77 species, sampled for both nuclear and mitochondrial…
