Megascops choliba (Strigiformes: Strigidae) predation on Scinax x-signatus (Anura: Hylidae) in the semiarid, Northeastern Brazil
relationships in different communities, where they are one of the main food items of the diet of many predators (Duellman and Trueb, 1994). Toledo et al. (2007) reported that birds make up 15% of the
Predation on Hypsiboas bischoffi (Anura: Hylidae) by Phoneutria nigriventer (Araneae: Ctenidae) in southern Brazil
TLDR
The agonistic call made it possible to locate the frog while it was being predated by Phoneutria nigriventer, and after the call, the frog was found completely paralyzed by the venom of P. bischoffi.
Re-description of the external morphology of Phyllomedusa iheringii Boulenger, 1885 larvae (Anura: Hylidae), with comments on the external morphology of tadpoles of the P. burmeisteri group
TLDR
The larval external morphology of P. iheringii is re-described and this species seems to be smaller in average and have fewer marginal papillae in the oral discs.
Ecological functions of neotropical amphibians and reptiles: a review
TLDR
By knowing and understanding the functions that perform the herps in ecosystems, management plans for cultural landscapes, restoration or recovery projects of landscapes that involve aquatic and terrestrial systems, development of comprehensive plans and detailed conservation of species and ecosystems may be structured in a more appropriate way.
Predation on bats by Great Kiskadees
TLDR
It was found that bats, insects, and fruits were the most common food items fed to nestlings by adult kiskadees, providing further evidence of the opportunistic feeding behavior of Great Kiskadee.
Foraging of Great Kiskadees (Pitangus sulphuratus) and food items offered to nestlings in the Pantanal.
TLDR
Bats and snails are the most advantageous items for P. sulphuratus parents feeding nestlings at the study site and the searching and offering time of food items to nestlings in the Pantanal, Brazil.
Predation of Dermatonotus muelleri (Anura, Microhylidae) by Guira guira (Cuculiformes, Cuculidae) in the coastline of the Sergipe state, northeastern Brazil
TLDR
The predation of Dermatonotus muelleri (Boettger, 1885) by Guira guira (Gmelin, JF, 1788) is reported to report to help input insights about the knowledge of interactions of Microhylidae Gunther, 1858 (1843) members and others species.
Anurans as prey: an exploratory analysis and size relationships between predators and their prey
TLDR
The vertebrate predators of post-metamorphic anurans were quantified and the predator–prey relationship was investigated by analysing the relative size of invertebrate predators and anuran, showing an increase in the Relative size of the prey when predators used special predatory tactics.
