There is a lack of knowledge regarding the diversity of anurans in high-elevation areas of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. In order to improve the knowledge about the diversity of this group in this kind of environment, we present a list of anuran amphibians recorded in high-elevation areas (above 1,200 m) of the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Orgaos (PARNASO), in southeastern Brazil. The list was compiled based on primary data (from fieldwork) and on secondary data (from surveys of institutional…

Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos: the highest Amphibian diversity within an Atlantic Forest protected area
TLDR
The amphibian community of the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos (PARNASO) is studied for over thirty years, and 83 species are recorded, ten of these species are endemic of the park, 18 have PARNASO as its type locality, and five the type locality is at the buffer zone.
Amphibians and reptiles from the Parque Nacional da Tijuca, Brazil, one of the world’s largest urban forests
Abstract: The Parque Nacional da Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is considered to be one of the world’s largest urban forests, however no systematic inventory of its herpetofauna is available. In
Anuran species composition and density estimates from an Atlantic Forest area within the APA Serra da Mantiqueira, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil
Abstract: Among amphibian species from high elevation areas in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest there is a high percentage of threatened and endemic species, but there is still a relative scarcity of
Lost and found: Frogs in a biodiversity hotspot rediscovered with environmental DNA
TLDR
The results support the potential application of eDNA in conservation biology, to evaluate persistence and distribution of threatened species in surveyed habitats or sites, and improve accuracy of red lists, especially for species undetected over long periods.
Assessing the importance of reproductive modes for the evaluation of altitudinal distribution patterns in tropical frogs
Altitudinal patterns in species richness vary among taxa and are shaped by the intrinsic traits of different organisms and their response to environmental variables. We evaluated the relationship
Amphibian fungal panzootic causes catastrophic and ongoing loss of biodiversity
TLDR
A global, quantitative assessment of the amphibian chytridiomycosis panzootic demonstrates its role in the decline of at least 501 amphibian species over the past half-century and represents the greatest recorded loss of biodiversity attributable to a disease.
A New Bromeligenous Species of Fritziana Mello-Leitão, 1937 (Amphibia: Anura: Hemiphractidae) from High Elevations in the Serra Dos Órgãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
A species-delimitation analysis of Fritziana using deoxyribonucleic acid sequences comprising two fragments of a mitochondrial gene supported the recognition of a new species as an exclusive lineage, sister to all other Fritziana species.

Anurans from two high-elevation areas of Atlantic Forest in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
The relatively high diversity of anurans, the presence of species restricted to high-altitude habitats, and the occurrence of rare and presently undescribed species attest to the biological relevance of the studied areas within the PETP.
Patterns of geographic distribution and conservation of the open-habitat avifauna of southeastern Brazilian mountaintops (campos rupestres and campos de altitude)
Montane open-habitats of southeastern Brazil are represented by the campos rupestres (principally in the Espinhaco Range) and by the campos de altitude (in the Serra do Mar and Serra da Mantiqueira).
Pattern of elevational distribution and richness of non volant mammals in Itatiaia National Park and its surroundings, in southeastern Brazil.
TLDR
Report on nonvolant mammal species known to occur in Itatiaia National Park and its surroundings and to determine if their distributional pattern is related to elevation to make a direct ordination gradient of marsupial, primate, and rodent species abundance with the altitude.
Altitudinal distribution of birds in a mountainous region in southeastern Brazil
TLDR
A decline in bird species richness with elevation is revealed, although a smaller number of species was recorded at lower altitudes (below 300 m) possibly due to local extinctions caused by the intense human occupation of the region.
From widespread to microendemic: molecular and acoustic analyses show that Ischnocnema guentheri (Amphibia: Brachycephalidae) is endemic to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
Although none of the species studied appears highly threatened with extinction, their IUCN threat status is recommended to be re-evaluated carefully for the next comprehensive update of the Red List of Brazil’s amphibians.
A new species of Cycloramphus Tschudi (Anura: Cycloramphidae) from the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos, Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
The discovery of a new species of frog associated to the open areas of the highlands of the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Orgaos is reported, characterized by a unique skin texture and embedded within the genus Cycloramphus.
Relative efficiency of anuran sampling methods in a restinga habitat (Jurubatiba, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
TLDR
It is concluded that there is a considerable difference in efficiency of methods used in the restinga environment and that the complete species inventory method is highly efficient for sampling frogs in the restsa studied and may be so in other restinga environments.
Amphibian Declines in Brazil: An Overview 1
TLDR
Records suggest declines of montane and stream‐associated populations of Brazilian amphibians in apparently pristine habitats, and it is important to invest in short‐ and long‐term field studies, and in the maintenance and expansion of museum collections.
Conservation of Brazilian Amphibians
TLDR
Brazil is the world leader in amphibian diversity, with 765 species, most of which have been described in the last 40 years, but the Brazilian Official List of Threatened Species and the results of a workshop indicate that 26 species are threatened.
Spatial patterns in species richness and priority areas for conservation of anurans in the Cerrado region, Central Brazil
TLDR
This work used extent of occurrence of 105 species of Anura in the Cerrado region to establish a regional system of potential areas that preserves all anuran species in the region, at a macroecological scale.
