Using a comparative ecological approach, over the c ourse of 18 days at the transition from a particularly wet to dry season in 2010, I as sessed herpetofaunal assemblages and related abiotic parameters (i.e., photosynthetically active radiation, specific conductance, temperature and coarse woody debris) between contiguous forest and human impacted areas along three paired transects across the steep elevation gradien t at Laguna de Cube, Ramsar site # 1143. Visual encounter surveys were used to… CONTINUE READING
