Amphibians of Alagoas State, northeastern Brazil
Alagoas State is located in the northeast Brazil and was originally covered by Atlantic Forest and Caatinga. Nowadays, only small fragments of these two biomes remain mainly due to agricultural and… Expand
Morphological characterization and taxonomic key of tadpoles (Amphibia: Anura) from the northern region of the Atlantic Forest
Although anuran tadpoles are widely distributed and abundant in tropical aquatic habitats, there is a lack of taxonomic keys for the Atlantic Forest. Herein, we developed a dichotomous key for… Expand
Reproduction of Agalychnis granulosa Cruz, 1989 (Anura: Hylidae)
We provide a detailed description of the reproduction of the tree frog Agalychnis granulosa, including its advertisement call. Agalychnis granulosa breeds in ponds and the backwaters of streams… Expand
