  journal={Revista Mexicana De Biodiversidad},
En Mexico, mas de la mitad de las especies de anfi bios estan amenazadas y de la mayoria no se genera informacion que permita conocer el estatus en el que se encuentran sus poblaciones. En este trabajo se evaluo la distribucion y abundancia de Craugastor vulcani, una rana endemica de la sierra de Los Tuxtlas Veracruz que se encuentra en riesgo de extincion, en funcion de la transformacion de la selva. Para este trabajo, se consultaron bases de datos de registros historicos y se muestrearon 12… Expand


Amphibian Population Declines in Latin America: A Synthesis1
The loss of global amphibian biodiversity has been well documented in recent years. The greatest information from Latin America came from countries such as Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, and PuertoExpand
Herpetofauna diversity and microenvironment correlates across a pasture–edge–interior ecotone in tropical rainforest fragments in the Los Tuxtlas Biosphere Reserve of Veracruz, Mexico
Abstract We evaluated the relationship between amphibian and reptile diversity and microhabitat dynamics along pasture–edge–interior ecotones in a tropical rainforest in Veracruz, Mexico. To evaluateExpand
Tropical rain forest fragmentation and wild populations of primates at Los Tuxtlas, Mexico
In view of the extensive destruction, fragmentation, and conversion of primate habitats to anthropogenic vegetation, information on Neotropical primate ability to use a landscape consisting of forestExpand

This study proposes a simple approach to estimate model performance for several distributional predictions generated simultaneously, particularly suitable when species distribution modelling techniques that require only presence data are used. Expand
Species diversity and habitat fragmentation: frogs in a tropical montane landscape in Mexico
Elevational variation, the degree of conservation of the vegetation canopy and fragment size appear to determine the species diversity of this landscape, and large species, terrestrial species, those whose eggs develop outside water, and those whose larvae develop in the water seemed to be most affected by habitat transformation.

Matrix habitat and species richness in tropical forest remnants
Positive and significant correlations between matrix abundance and vulnerability to fragmentation are exhibited, suggesting that species that avoid the matrix tend to decline or disappear in fragments, while those that tolerate or exploit the matrix often remain stable or increase. Expand
Effects of conversion of dry tropical forest to agricultural mosaic on herpetofaunal assemblages.
The decline in abundance of disturbance-sensitive species was associated with the reduction of forest canopy cover, woody stem cover, roots, and litter-layer ground cover in Neotropical dry forests. Expand
Value of small patches in the conservation of plant-species diversity in highly fragmented rainforest.
A great portion of regional plant diversity was located in very small forest patches, most of the species were restricted to only a few patches, and each landscape conserved a unique plant assemblage. Expand
Paradox, presumption and pitfalls in conservation biology: The importance of habitat change for amphibians and reptiles.
A global scale review of the state of research regarding the consequences of structural habitat change for amphibians and reptiles reveals a number of serious deficiencies, and suggests that the study of habitat change is deserving of considerably more attention. Expand
Response to Comment on "Status and Trends of Amphibian Declines and Extinctions Worldwide"
The first global assessment of amphibians provides new context for the well-publicized phenomenon of amphibian declines and shows declines are nonrandom in terms of species' ecological preferences, geographic ranges, and taxonomic associations and are most prevalent among Neotropical montane, stream-associated species.
