This study describes the richness and capture rates of lizards in forested and pasture areas at a locality in Rondonia (southwestern Amazon) utilizing three sampling methods: pitfall trap with drift fences, nocturnal time-constrained search and incidental finding. In all, 29 species belonging to nine families was recorded. Most species were found in forested area, whilst only eight species in pasture area. Most species were collected with pitfall trap (22), followed by incidental finding (16…

Herpetofauna da floresta do baixo rio Moa em Cruzeiro do Sul, Acre - Brasil
We report the results of a herpetofauna survey carried out in the forest of Lower Moa River, Cruzeiro do Sul, state of Acre, northern Brazil. The study was carried out from February 2008 to September
The herpetofauna of Parque Nacional da Serra das Confusões, state of Piauí, Brazil, with a regional species list from an ecotonal area of Cerrado and Caatinga
Different physiognomies at Parque Nacional da Serra das Confusoes (PNSCo) were intensively sampled aiming to access the distribution pattern of its herpetofauna. Sixty six species were found in the
Serpentes do Estado de Rondônia, Brasil
TLDR
There are gaps of knowledge on snake fauna in some regions of the state, and further studies are essential, because of the increaseing habitat destruction along the Cerrado and southern portions of Amazonia.
Hábitos alimentares de serpentes em Espigão do Oeste, Rondônia, Brasil
TLDR
The majority of snake species from Espigao do Oeste feed on lizards, as in Central Amazonia (Manaus), while a smaller proportion of snakes in the Amazonia feed upon frogs in relation to the Pantanal, South and Southeastern Brazil.
Snakes in a seasonally dry tropical forest in northeastern Brazil
Abstract: This study aimed to provide information on composition, abundance, and estimated snakes richness in an area of arboreal Caatinga (seasonally dry tropical forest) and analyze patterns of
Iheringia, Série Zoologia
Fragmentation of natural vegetation often implies a reduction in local species richness and abundance. The resources used by bees and wasps for feeding and nesting are distributed quite irregularly
Rapid survey of the herpetofauna in an area of forest management in eastern Acre, Brazil
Timber exploitation is the most profitable and popular use of forest. To evaluate how this activity affects biodiversity is of crucial importance for conservation. Therefore, we carried out a
Contributions to the knowledge of amphibians and reptiles from Volta Grande do Xingu, northern Brazil.
TLDR
A checklist of amphibians and reptiles of the region is presented and information regarding the spatial distribution of the assemblies based on results of Environmental Programmes conducted in the area is discussed.
Occurrence of Helminths in Lizards (Reptilia: Squamata) at Lower Moa River Forest, Cruzeiro do Sul, Acre, Brazil
TLDR
Eleven of 113 lizards representing 6 of the 17 species (Anolis fuscoauratus, Anolis trachyderma, Plica umbra, Kentropyx pelviceps, Arthrosaura reticulata, and Mabuya nigropunctata) collected in the lower Moa River forest were infected with helminths in the gastrointestinal tracts.
Are Amazonia Rivers Biogeographic Barriers for Lizards? A Study on the Geographic Variation of the Spectacled Lizard Leposoma osvaldoi Avila-Pires (Squamata, Gymnophthalmidae)
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the differences in river dynamics between the lower and upper Rio Aripuanã during mid-Miocene through the Pleistocene could explain the results, although phylogeographic evidence is lacking to support such a hypothesis.

The results presented here indicate that pitfall traps are extremely useful to sample amphibians and reptiles in Brazil, especially anurans and lizards.
Life above ground: ecology of Anolis fuscoauratus in the Amazon rain forest, and comparisons with its nearest relatives
TLDR
General ecological attributes are similar among populations across the Amazon region even though the number of sympatric Anolis species as well as the total number of lizard species vary among sites, reflecting the fact that there is little evolutionary divergence among populations.

TLDR
Different ecological traits of A. punctatus and A. transversalis render them likely candidates for local extinction when deforestation occurs, and a positive relationship existed between lizard body size (SVL) and mean prey volume.
